The brick clay at Osterhout's tannery was not sufficient for the Ross Brothers, They have leased land on James Gardner's place about 2 miles from this village, where excellent brick clay is found in abundance. They propose manufacturing 1,000, 000 brick this season. The old court house was sold to Hugh McGeehiu, on Tuesday last for $135,00 he being the highest bidder, The building is to be removed in two weeks from day of sale, and the money to bo paid in thirty days. Workmen commenced tearing down the chimneys on Wednesday morn ing. Mr. McGeehiu proposed moving the building to his lot on Main Street next west of the post office. It is not every man that can own a court house. Friday morning last smoke was Been issuing from the roof of the addi tion of Judge Messenger's resi dence. The alarm was at once given, calling together a large crowd of people. A hole was cut in the roof but no fire was discovered, nothing but smoke. The soot in the chimney had taken fire, creating con siderable smoke which escaped into the attic through a hole in the chim ney. No particular damage done, al-1 though the chimney was very hot. The evidence taken in the con tested election case of Curtin vs Yocum, was closed at the office of Hall & McCauley at midnight last Tuesday, in a blaze of glory, with Geo. D. Messenger on the stand. In Elk county Mr. Curtin's counsel have utterly failed by their evidence in chief to establish the claim of their client, and relied on cross examina tion and the rebuttal to make out a case. In this they have also failed, and we consider Mr. Yocurn's chauccs for retaining his seat, as amounting to a certainty. Reports from the other counties in the district are favorable to Mr- Yocum. Uor.se Thief Captured. Quite a commotion was created in Ridgway last Tuesday afternoon by the return of a horse thief in company with his captors. Sunday night a white marg was stolen from the stable of Soloman Stahlman, near Green ville, Clarion county. A man had applied for work the day before, and suspicion at once fastened on him as the probable thief. Mr. Stahlman offered a reward of $25 for his arrest. A party of men from near Green ville, consisting of Samuel Bard, Robt. Allison and John Smith, struck the trail of the thief, following it into Millstone township, Elk county. The trail was followed with varied success all day Monday, Mr. Thief try ing to hike off across the country in the direction of Marionville, Forest county, but was prevented by the snow, and finally took the main road direct through- Ridgway, passing this place early Tuesday morning, and going to St. Mary's via the state road, where he was arrested about a mile east of the latter place near Kaul's mill, Mr. R. M. Painter, of Millstone town ship, who joined the party at this place being the first man to lay hands on the thief; Robt. Allison, John Smith, and Daniel . Cannavan, of this place, and the constable of St. Mary's borough, assisting to surround the man. The thief gave the name of Miller, and is the same coon who sold a horse to the Ross Brothers a few weeks ago, and at the time jumped a board bill of $20 at the Thayer house. He spent Tuesday night in jail, being taken down the creek Wednesday morning on his journey to the Clarion Co., jail. His pocket book contained about three dollars in money .which he M'ould have raised to a respectable amount had he succeeded in selling the gray mare which was a beautiful looking beast, speaking well for his Judgment of horse-flebh.

Lately, while a travelling menag erie was being exhibited at a village in Thuringla, the leopard tore the bars from his cage, and with a magnificent bound landed among the spectators. He killed a woman and a child, nnd the sight of blood excited him to such a degree that he would not relinquish his prey until beaten to death. Ex amination proved that the bars of the cage had be previously loosened, and an employee discharged for drunken ness has been arrested. There was outrageous fraud in a Philadelphia pie-eating match. The contestants were three in number, and one of the largest of the variety theatres was crowded with spectators. Three pies were placed on a table,on the stage, and the referee said, " Ready go." Each man grabbed a pie, and shut his mouth on about a quarter of its surface; but there was no swallow ing, for the pie was filled with leather, straw, and nails. In the Chicago whiskey cases a final decision has been rendered by Judge Clifford against the right to grant immunity from prosecution. Royal Baking Powder at Mor gester's. The new double postal card is in a similar shape lo the present one cent card. It bears at both upper corners a one cent stamp, and lines are drawn from the centre sloping downward to each lower comer, to be written upon, the writer of the card uses the left hand side in writing his reply. The double letter envelop is stamped twice; and the sender uses the right and the receiver uses the left hand side in writing the address. At. the back of this envelop is a double gummed flap, divided by a perforated line. The lower one is used for sealing by the sender and the receiver uses his knife along the perforated line and lias a new gummed flap ready for use. The letter sheet envelopes is designed to do away with the outer envelopes. Its patentee claims great merit for it for the reason that it often occurs that the date at which a writing has been mailed can not be ascertained because the envelope has been lost. Here the letter and the envelope are one. The new law does not direct the Postmaster General to issue these patented conveniences. It only gives him the discretion to do so. They should come into general use. Impudence Set Down Upon. Some time since one of the brightest and wittiest of Cincinnati's girls went abroad, and when she.returned home, about the first person to con gratulate her on her safe return was B , a young blood of the city, whose dollars exceeded his sense in the ratio of about a million to one. "Aw, Miss X ," he said, "permit me to greet you. I know you have had a very pleasant trip abroad!" "Yes," she answered, "very pleasant indeed. I was all over the contiuent and through England, Scotland and Ireland." "Ah, in Ireland, and did you see the Blarney stone?" "Yes I was there," "Oh, I should delight to see it It has always been a desire of mine to kiss that celebrated stone, but I have never had the opportunity '' "Indeed, then you should." "I know, but I have not done so, but why shouldn't I kiss it by proxy? You have been there and kissed it, why should I not take the influence of the Blarney from your lips?" and the smart Aleck stepped forward to proxify the young lady. But she drew back and looking him in the face, said : "I beg your pardon, my dear Mr. B , but I sat upon the Blarney stone." Like a man with great sorrow, B sank down, and he hasn't said "Ire land" since, and the word "Blarney" makes him delirious. Tragedy at State Lino. From the McKcnn Miner. On Friday morning lastHenry Wag ner and James Doyle, the former em ployed in measuring lumber at Bullis Mill and the latter engaged at the same place in booming and assorting logs, got into a dispute which ended in the capsizing of one of the skiffs occupied by Wagner and the drowning of the latter. It appears that there were two small boats about the mill, but on Fri day, the day of the casualty, the work of Doyle required the use of both and he was assured by one of theeinployees that - ho could have them. Wagner was not aware of the privilege granted Doyle and at the beginning of the day's labor the former took one of the boats and started up the river for some purpose. Doyle returned from the boom to the mill to get a pike-lever when he saw Wagner rowing up the stream. Doyle demanded the boat saying that he would need it for work on the booms, but Wager paid no at tention, doubtless supposing it was simply an attempt of Doyle to deprive him of its use to satisfy,' if possible, the ill-feeling which he was conscious existed between them, for they had not been on agreeoble terms for some time past. Wagner told Doyle in a sneering way that he could have the boat if he could get it. This aroused the anger of Doyle and he jumped into the boat he had in use and started in pursuit of Wagner. .The latter, seeing the course of Doyle, immed iately stopped rowing, and when Doyle came close enough to him with one of the oars he splashed water on Wagner, and Wagner in return unshipped one of his oars and dashed water on Doyle. The latter, when within a proper dis tance, jumped into the skiff occupied by Wagner. By this time high words were passing between the two men. They raised their oars and each threat ened to strike the other. A short scuffle followed, during which they capsized the vessel, and Wagner either fell or was thrown into the river. Doyle sworn to the left shore and Wagner struggled about the water for a short time endeavoring to reach the boat. He failed in the attempt, how ever, and disappeared and reappeared several times. Doyle, after reaching the river bank, took off his boots and plunged into the stream again and brought out one of the boats. By this time Doyle became alarmed, and, with several other persons who saw the struggle, went to the rescue of the drowning man. Doyle took a pike pole and attempted to help the man. Realizing that probably life was gone, in his excited state, Doyle exclaimed, "Oh, my God, what have I done?" Wagner's body was taken ashore and efforts made to resuscitate him, while a man hastened to Eldred and sum moned Dr. Guthrie. However, Henry Wagner was beyond revival, and nothing of course could be done even when the physician did arrive. The following TJay Coroner Blair was notified of the matter, and proceeded to State Line depot, where, after em paneling a jury, the testimony of James Doyle, and six other witnesses' testimony was taken. After hearing the evidence and some deliberation, the jury found a verdict to the effect that James Doyle was the cause of Henry Wagner's death. A warrant wus subsequently issued, and on Sun day morning Doyle was arrested in the neighborhood of Eldred and taken to thecounty jail at Smethport.

Cohoes, N. Y., April 6. At three. o'clock yesterday afternoon Catharine Duusback, a maiden lady, fifty years of age, residing three miles west of Cohoes, was found with her throat cut from ear to ear. The motives of the outrage were murder and robbery, the sum of (4 being secured by the villain. A tramp who called this morning os tensibly to procure work and subse quently was seen to approach the resi dence after the departure of Jacob Drunsback, father of the victim, and the only man on the farm, Is suspected of being the perpetrator of the deed. Coroner Eccles has assumed charge of the case nnd is having the country scoured In search of the murderer, floor during the night to gain relief, she was attracted to the window and fell out This week is one of especial in terest to several prominent denomina tions of Christians and also to the Jews. Maunday Thursday, or the day before Good Friday, commemorates the washing of the disciples' feet by Christ. Good Friday, called in the early days of the church, God's Friday is a day memorable for fasting and solemn services in remembrance of the Saviour's crucifixion. Holy Sat urday follows and then comes Easter or Rising day, tlie greatest festival of the Christian year. Monday evening the Jewish passover began ; the feast which celebrates the passage of the destroying angel over sucfi houses of the Israelites as exhibited a door post sprinkled with the blood of a lamb. The passover properly continues for seven days, but is only kept for that length of time by the strictest sect of the Jews. Dr. Manouvrleg, a Freich physician, has published some novel observations on a disease peculiar to bank clerks. It has been repeatedly noticed for years that bankers' clerkt, after having handled for some days in succession large quantities of silver five franc pieces, suffer from disorders of the re spiratory and digestive organs. These have been ascribed to a dark-greenish metallic dust, which is raised by tak ing the coins from the bigs where they are generally kept,' weighing them, and puttingthem back. This dust im pregnates the atmosphere of the room, blackens the skin, and penetrates into the respiratory and digestive tracts to gether with the air and saliva. It the years 1872 and 1874, wlen the money which had been paid by France to Prussia as a tribute was returned to France through - mercantile transac tions, the clerks spent an unusually long time in handling the coins, which had not been taken out of their bags for some years, and t he affection was more marked than ever. Owing to the peculiar clrcumstanes under which tills affection has been observed, there can be no doubt as to its being due partly to the copper (verdigris), and partly to the oxidized stata of the silver; both metals are used in the coinage of the five-franc pieces in the proportion of nine-tenths f silver and one-tenth of copper. Davenport, Iowa, April 6. Harry C. Watt occupied apartments over his cigar store on Third street, the family consisting of his wife, their little daughter Ed a, his wife's sisters, Misses Louisa and Amelia filter and an errand boy. Last night visitors left the house at a quarter past eleven o'clock, and Mr. and Mrs. Watt soon retired. Miss Amelia had gone to bed and her sister was preparing to do so when she went to the bureau and diuuk the contents of a glass, immed iately fainting. Mrs. Watt.aroused by screams, rushed into the room. Her husband followed shortly, after. Miss Louisa was found in the agonies of death lying in a corner of the room. Watt ended his life really before Louisa did, but she lingered only a mere moment of time after him. It is unmistakably proved this evening that the tragedy was a premeditated suicide It came out that a letter had been found in Watt's pocket addressed to his wife, and that in this letter he told the whole story of the deed and the cause for it. It was intended by the physicians to hold a post mortem, but this the wife forbid after reading the letter, as there could be no doubt of the nature of the deed. The fact is established that Harry C. Watt and Louisa Filter had loved each other un wisely and illicitly, and they bad de termiued to end their troubles mu tually with their lives. Prussie acid was the agent used. Watt preparing the dose for Louisa and then for him self. A bottle containing the acid was found in the room. A Special Offer to the Readers of this Paper. 97.00 FOR 63 CENTS.

The Bank of Commerce yesterday subscribed by telegraph for $40,000,- 000 of the four per cent Government loan. It was at first rumored that the subscription was mode for a syndicate, comprising Drexel, Morgan & Co., Winslow, Lanier & Co., Sellgman & Co., Morton, Bliss & Co., and the Bank of Commerce, but subsequently It was ascertained that the proposal had been made on the responsibility of the Bank of Commerce alone. The terms are the same as laid down in Mr. Sher man's circular of January last, viz: the bank is to receive one-quartfr of one per cent, with an additional one tenth of one per cent in case the bid exceed $10,000,000. This will give the Bank of Commerce a profit of more than $100,000. It is said that the firms above named are interested to a greater or less extent in the proposal of the bank, but there are no means of ascertaining whether they are or not. This subscription will wipe out the re mainder of the 'CTsand '68s, and enable the Treasury, at a later date, to begin to fund the 10-40s. The telegraphic proposal of the Bank of Commerce was made early in the day, but later a number of influential capitalists met at the Continental Bank, and just after 3 P. M. agreed to propose for $30,000,000 of the fours. Their offer was telegraphed at once, but the answer from the department was that no further subscriptions would be received at present Mr. Johh Sherman, announced, in an Interview a few days ago, that he would make a stop in the issue of fours as soon as he had succeeded in wiping out the '67s and 68s;and wait for better terms before he commenced the elimination of the 10-40s. Besides the $40,000,000 of the Bank of Commerce, proposals for about $7,000,000 were accepted at the Treasury. Dr. William Parke sums up his views on the temperance question in five conclusions: First There is a wide distinction, which ought to be recognized by temperance reformers.be- tween fermented and distilled liquors. In fermented liquor alcohol is found in its natural chemical combination ; in distilled liquor it is found pure and simple. In the one case it may be em ployed In diet and for nourishment; in the other case it is to be regarded only as a medicine, and as a dangerous one, to be used only with caution. Fer mented liquors include ale, beer, cider, and the various wines. Second If men would use pure fermented liquors in moderate quantities, as a condiment, and only in connection with their meals, the use need not be harmful, and at least in case of those post the middle life might be beneficial. There fore the State ought to license only real inns, and for the sale of fermented liquors alone. Third Total abstinence is a good thing for everybody, because the use of even fermented 'liquors is dangerous, in that in some individuals, especially in those who inherit a ten dency to inebriety, it creates or awakens an appetite for drink, and healthy persons do not need them. Fourth Distilled liquors are deadly. Their use is productive of more disease, physical, mental, and moral, than that of any other known agent, and pro duces an immeasurably greater num ber of untimely deaths. Fifth Dis tilled liquor is an indispensable medi cine, but its sale should be confined to drug stores, and on the prescription of a physician. The novel sight was presented in the Texas Legislature, a week or two ago of a member of that body speak ing in Spanish in advocacy of a bill 'making the payment of poll tax a pre requisite to voting. His argument, which most of the body understood although uttered in a foreign ongue, was that at the lost election over one thousand Mexicans had crossed over and voted in Texas. The Spanish must have been persuasive, as the bill passed the lower house.
