Wednesday of last week, in Erie, Mamie Anthony, a girl seven years of age, went to the Erie Forge Works, to carry her uncle's dinner. Owing to some accident, a huge red hot shaft, weighing nearly a ton, fell upon her, crushing her to death. - Port Jar vis, July 22. Colonel Au thony P. Kerr, a well known runner residing at the foot of Mount Eve, in this county, went into a field a few days ago to catch a horse, when he was knocked down by the animal and trampled to death. He was sixty years of age. The treasury department ordered the transfer of $4,104,466 in gold bul lion from the New York assay office to the Philadelphia mint to be coined into eagles and half eagles. This makes about ten million dollars in bullion similarly transfered during the present month. The story is told of an absent minded farmer In Iowa who lost live of his cows. He discovered his loss in the evening when he went to drive them from pasture, and spent all night and the next day searching for them. He finally discovered them in the stable, having neglected to leave them out the day before. The veterans of ex Governor Har trauft s regiment held a meeting at Lewisburg recently and concluded ar rangements for the annual reunion, which will take place at Lewisburg, Union county, September 14, 1881. Hon. A. Wilson Norris, of Philadel phia, will deliver the annual address, David J. Hill, President of the Lewisburg University, the address of welcome. Hon. J. Merrill Linn, of Lewisburg, is chairman of the execu tive committee of arrangements. "Never before has such a demon stration been seen so unaffected, so deep, so word-wide, as the sympathy for President Garfield," the Man chester (England) Examiner says. It attributes it to the fact that the mass of the world's people think that he is one of them, and because his family life brings hiin close to the popular heart. In the respect of coining from palace and workshop, the Examiner thinks it is the greatest tribute yet paid to any man since the beginning of history. Little Rock, Ark., July 22. The outlaw troubles in Perry county have broken out afresh. It will be rcmcm bereed that a few weeks ago Judge Harris and J. AV. Matthews, editors of the Forest Valley Times, were ordered by a "select'' band of outlaws to leave the country. Affairs haci reached such a crisis that Governor Church hill sent General Newton .commander of the State militia, to the scene to investigate the matter. A truce was temporarily effected which was broken by the cowardly assassin of Mr. Matthews last night. A bit of flirtation proceedings came out at Reading the other day. A bachelor of Philadelphia, with his twin brother, went to Reading to spend the summer holiday. Of course, being wealthy and good look ing, they made the acquaintance of two of Reading's best girls. They walked, rode and flirted, all inno cently, for all the parties were emi nently resDectable. They attended at pic-nlcs, and these four were every where present. Soon, however, one of the girls had a warrant served ou one of the brothers cbargiug him with the larceny of a gold watch. On the trial, the 18 year old girl testified that the old batch gave her the watch, and subsequently snatched it from her hand, at a jewelry store, and walked away. On the other hand the fellow testified that he gave the watch con ditionally ; that the young lady failed to carry out her part of the agreemeut, and that he determined to get hack his property. He admitted taking the watch as the witness hud testified, but the consideration had been love and kisses, which she did not hand over. She hud allowed the fellow to kiss her, hut had not responded to her part of the contract The Alderman re quired the fellow to give bail, holding that a gift from a person of sound mind was the property of the one re ceiving it. The prosecution will bo stopped by the prosecutrix taking back her property, and the defendant paying the costs. The girl is modest and does not wish to be further ex posed. After having gone so far she might as well have ''gone the whole hog." The girl's same was Lizzie Morgurie, aud his James Barwell.. All this, and but one corner of the veil raised mmim Conkling'.i SnrccMor. Hon. El bridge Gerry Lapham, who was elected last Saturday aftnrnoou to succeed Mr. Conkllng In the Sen ate for the term ending In March, 1885, g the son of the late Judge John Lnpham, aud was horn In Farmington N. Y., October 13, 1814. He was brought up on a farm and during the winter months attended the public schools. He spent some time at the Canandaigua academy, where he was a classmate of Stephen A. Douglas and also studied civil engineering. After spending some time In work upon tiie line of the Michigan South ern Railroad, Mr. Lapham studied law, and in 1844 he was admitted to the bar. He settled at Cunanduigua, whero he has since practiced law. Soon after his admission to the bar Mr. Lapham formed a partnership with Judge James C. Smith, which continued until the latter was raised to the bench. He attained a high rank in his professsiou, and has always been a most successful advo cate and dangerous antagonist, es pecially in jury trials. As a lawyer he stands among the first of the members of the New York bar. Mr. Lapham made his entrance upon a public career In the constitu tional convention of 1SG7, but did not become a candidate for u strictly polit ical office until 1874, when he was elected to Congress in the Twenty seventh district embracing the counties of Livingston, Ontario, and Yates and has since been three times re-elected, Ids vote last November standing 15,(573 to 12,203 for his Dem ocratic opponent. In the house he has been u useful and active member, and lie materially advanced his reputa tion as a lawyer by the part he took as one of the managers of the Im peachment of Secretary Belknap during Grant s second term. Originally a Democrat, Mr Lnpham acted with that party until 1848, but he supported the Wilmot proviso and the Van Ruren ticket in that year, and was a delegate to the Buffalo convention. Since the organ ization of the Republican party he lias been an active and zealous mem ber of that party. Of lute he has been rather prominently indentitied with the so-called Stalwart faction. He advocated the unit rule and the in struction of the delegates to Cincinnati to vote for Conkling for president in the Syracuse convention of lS7(i, and worked at the Utiea convention last year to make New York instruct for Grant. Rut, although he M as selected as one of the administration caucus candidates for the Senate because of his Indentification with the Stalwart faction, it is not believed that he will follow in Mr. Conkling's footsteps an. I make war upon the administration. When Piatt was nominated by the Republican caucus for Senator in January last, Mr. Lapham was an aspirant for the nomination, but re ceived only four votes. During the memorable contest just closed he has been voted for all along, and ou the twenty-second joint ballot he got as many as twenty -six votes for the short term, while for the long term he re ceived from one to eight votes before his nomination by the administration caucus on July 8 for the short term. When Presidents Have Died. A fraction more than one-third of all the presidents of the United States (not counting the two ex-presidents now living nor President Garfield) have died in the month of July. Those who met their fate in this month were Jefferson and Adams (July 4, 1826), Monroe (July 4, 1881), Van Ruren ( July 24, 1802 ). Taylor (July 9 ,1850), Johnson (July 31, 1875), Four others Madison, Jackson, polk and Buchanan died in June. In those two months, therefore, exactly half of all the presidents the republic has had departed this life. The follow ing list may be of interest in this connection: Preslucnt. IMtnl. Age 1.

General Grant is now fifty-nine years old, ex-President Hayes is fifty eight, and President Garfield is fifty. Foreign Sympathy. London, July 23. The Standard in an editorial this morning says: In England every Incident of President Garfield's illness is watched with keen but mouruful interest. Had he been a British statesman it would have been hardly possible for the English people to have manifested a truer sentiment of sympathy than that which they have extended to his family aud to his country. In no part of the United States will the news that Mr. Garfield is out of danger be more Joyfully received than In England. Iu no part of the Union will tidings of his death, should that melancholy event occur, excite deeper or more genuine feeliug of sorrow than tbey would produce throughout her Majesty's English speaking dominions. NATHAN CLIFFORD. Death or the Uulteit Slate Supreme Judge at the Ago of Seventy-eight Portland, Me., July 2.5. Justice Nathan Clifford of the United States Supreme Court died at Cornish at 9 o'clock this morning. JUSTICE CLIFFORD'S CAREER. Justice Nathan Clifford, who has been for more than a decade the senior member of the United States Supremo Court, both In age and length of ser vice, was born at llunmey, N. 1L, on the eighteenth of August, 1803. After a high school education he studied law aud moved to Maine, where he soon made a figure in his profession and also in politics. He was repeat edly chosen to the legislature, and was twice electod speaker of tho assembly before he was thirty years old. For tho four years after 1834 he was At torney General of tho State, and for the next four a representative in Con gress. President Polk made him At torney General of the United States iu 184H, and lie held this position for a couple of years, after which lie was sent us commissioner from this country to Mexico and later made United States minister to that repub lic. Returning to Maine, he resumed the practice of his profession at Port land, and was so engaged when Prenident Pierce, on the twelfth of January, 1857, commissioned him as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Benja min R. Curtis. The Judge was In his fifty-fourth year when he took his seat, but he was the youngest of the whole bench, except John A. Camp bell, of Alabama, who resigned in 18(il to go witli his state Into secession. Indeed, Judge Clifford constituted one of the last links which connected the present federal judiciary with the pe riod of the last Democratic adminis tration. When he was commissioned Roger B. Taney was Chief Justice, and was just on the point of rendering the notorious Dred-Scott decision. His associates were John McLean, of Ohio, and James M. Wayne, of Georgia, who bad been appointed by Andrew Jackson; John Catron, of Tennessee, whoso commission dated back to 18;)7, and who, although born in 1778, kept his place until deatli in 1805; Peter V. Daniel, of Virginia, Samuel Nelson, of New York, Robert C. Grier, of Pennsyl vania, and John A. Campbell, of Alabama. With the exception of Mr. Campbell, the Chief Justice and all the associate justices of that- day died years ago. Nor is there to day iu service a single circuit judge who was ou the bench In 1827, and only three or four of the over fifty judges of United States district courts holding commissions signed, like Clifford's by Franklin Pierce. Judge Clifford was never a great man, but he was always industrious and faithful. Until attacked by para lysis last summer ho bore up very well under the assaults of old age, having inherited a vigorous constitution from his New Hampshire parentage and looked carefully after his health. Sub sequently to his paralysis he was attacked by gangrene aud was forced to undergo an amputation of the foot. For mouths lie has been beyond hope of recovery, and latterly he had been unable even to write his name, and was almost an imbecile. When the important decision was given by the Supreme Court, May 1, 1877, alii ruling the constitutionality of the legal-tender acts, Judge Clifford read an opinion dissenting from the majority, in which lie was supported by the Chief Justice and Judges Nelson and Field. That dissenting opinion, which made great talk ut the time, held that the act of Congress, so fur as applicable to contracts made be fore the passage, is repugnant to the constitution and void, uud also that it is repugnant to the constitution and void so far us applicable to contracts made since its passage. Justice Clif ford, could, in fact, always be depended on to take ground against the federal idea in our government. One of his last acts was to concur with Judge Field iu a dissenting opinion iu a test case sustaining the federal election laws. Again, a Massachu setts Judge of Probate having, iu 1871 refusing to pay his income tax, or paid it under protest, claiming that the salaries paid by states to their officers were exempt from federal taxation, the Supreme Court affirmed that view; and Justice Clifford, in pronouncing the decision said : " Counties and other municipal corporations were created by the states ; but the states were not created by the United States, as the states existed as independent sovereignties even before the Union was formed." An interesting story is told illus trating the strict integrity und high sense of duty displayed on the most trying occasions by Justice Clifford. The Justice was president of the famous electoral commission, and a firm believer in the validity of Til dcu's title. His position made it necessary for him to sign the decisions of the commission. The preparation of the papers in the Florida case fell to Senator Hoar ou account of Senator Edmunds' illness, aud their comple tion wus delayed until witlt a few minutes of noon of the fourth of March. Justice Clifford, by insisting upon a careful personal scrutiny of the papers, could have put off their execu tion until too lute, and prevented the inauguration of Mr. Hayes. He did not, however, throw the smallest ob stacle in the way of the work, but showed almost equal anxiety with Senator Hour in hurrying it forward, and promptly affixed his signature as soon us the documents were completed. But he never went to the White House during the Hayes administra tion, so bitter was his feeling in the matter. Tho Uraml Encampment.

Dean Stanley's Funeral. A (IRK AT CROWD AT WESMINISTEK AH11HY THE FLORAL DECORATIONS. London, July 25. Although 3 o'clock this afternoon was the time announced for the opening of West minster Abbey for tho funeral of the lute Dean Stanley, a crowd began to assemble at noon, and by 2 o'clock fully twice us many persons were present as could possibly be accom modated. The Prince of Wales was in attendance, and other members of the Royul family were specially repre sented. Dean Stanley's coffin and the room in which it was placed pend ing the funeral were decorated with wreaths and crosses eoinjKised of the choicest flowers, which had been ar riving at the Deanery from an early hour of the morning. The decora tions included a wreath of roses sent by the Queen with a note in her own handwriting bearing the words: ''A mark of sincere affection and high esteem, from Victoria." There were also wreaths from well-known Ameri cans in Loudon. Matthew Arnold, the eminent writer; Right Hon. William King Smith, the Bishop of Exeter, Right Hon. William E. Fos ter, and the Duke of Westminister were among the pall-bearers. The Archbishop of Canterbury presided at the grave. Many persons were deeply affected. Among the others present were professors Huxley and Tyndall, Rev. Dr. Newman Hall, Cardinal Newman, Cardinal Manning, Lord Shaftsbury, the Bishops of Teu nessee, Peterboro, St. Albun's, Glou cester and other prominent clergy men, tho Dukes of Argyll und Rich mond, the Marquis of Salisbury, Lords Derby, Aberdare and Slier brook, Mr. Gladstone, Sir Stafford Northcote, Sir R. Assheton Cross, Sir Bar tie Frere. Sir Robert Lighton, and the Baroness Burdett-Couts. An Importunt matter has Just been concluded at Harrisburg in awarding to a New York firm, who gave f20,000 security to perform the contract, the publication of the Pennsylvania State Reports of Supreme Court cases. The Lancaster Intelligencer says : Under the contract they are to furnish these reports at $1.16 per volume to mem bers of the legal profession, or any body else who want to buy them, each volume to contain seven hundred pages; and as their contents are fur nished by a State reporter, they cau not be unduly swelled. This is done under the act of 1K78, by which also the State reporter is paid $3,000 salary and has no profits from the reports. Heretofore his emoluments consisted iu his copyright of the reports, which he sold at from $4 to $4.50 per volume. These prices, about three-fold the val ire of the book, were a severe tax on the profession, alike on old law yers ksepiug up their libraries and upon young attorneys forming their collections. The chauge will bo a grateful one. Oil in ft Warden. .. PROSPECTING IN POTATO PATCH KS, Memlvlllo Republican, July 22, A month or so ago Sebastian Huchn, a blacksmith living in Mechanic street, Titusvlllo, was spading in his garden after a heavy rain. As he turned up the earth he noticed that little pools of crude petroleum formed In the cavities made by the spnde. Ho dug a pit four feet deep. It filled up with oil to such an extent that he dipped out five barrels full. The oil was of excellent quality, and Huohn sold his five barrels to the Octave oil refinery. Week before last Huehn dug another "well" In his garden. It responded with a yield of two barrels an hour. The well attracted great at tention. It produced eighty barrels, and then ceased to How. The excite ment over the novel oil territory died out soon afterward. Ou Monday last the news spread through the city that Haehn hud opened another well In his garden, and that it was yielding at the rate of thirty-six barrels u day. Hundreds flocked to the scene of the new oil operations. The well was lo cated in the southwest corner of Haehn's potato patch. Witli a large tin hand pump the owner was taking out of tho "hole"' two barrels of oil an hour. His previous well had also started uguin. From that one of Haehn's sons was taking oil at the rate of twenty barrels a dH.y. Immediately following this strike of tho lucky blacksmith a great de maud for leases of adjoining gardens arose. Such an oil field had never been heard of before. Without capi tal, and with no tools but a shovel, an operator could sin If a well and strike the "sand" in half an hour. The right to dig on four feet of a man's garden became wortli $5 bonus and one-fourth of the oil. For three days Mechanic and adjacent streets have been thronged wijh excited spectators of the new operation in oil production, und parties anxious to get "a piece of the territory." On Tuesday night Theodore Avery, Who lias a coal yard adjoining Haehn's garden, put down a well. At the depth of four feet he struck oil. The yield was a barrel an hour. He has put down four more wells since. The live wells were yes terday yielding eight barrels an hour. The success of the Haehn und Avery ventures led to a wide extension of this strange territory. A vacant lot on Washington street southeast from Haehn's was yesterday the scene of active operations. Three producing wells were put down. The rest were "dusters." dipt. Pickering went to "wildeating" under a shed near thti Buffalo, Pittsburg and Warren rail road truck south of Haehn's. He dug to a deptli of eight feet, and got a well good tor ten barrels a day. Two wells were put down ou the ground of the Octave refinery. At live feet oil was found. One of the wells is pump ing twenty-five barrels a day. The McKeown Garden, east of the refinerv, was leased by J. P. Thomas, Win. Mc Kenzie aud J. M. Briton. Thomas took the northern half of the garden. He got two five barrel wells of excel lent green oil. The other parties struck oil, but it whs of a red hue, und had the appearance of being mixed with tar. 1 n the gardens along the east side of Washington street several wells "came in" us good producers, but the oil was of an interior quality. All the property along Oil Creek, between Washington and Franklin streets, lias been leased by A. J. Kraff crt. He will develop it on a large scale. The original Haehn territory main tains its yield, and is being further developed. Haehn has made, u trench all around his garden und one through the centre. Into these the oil collects rapidly. The operator is putting up tanks to receive his oil, as there is a great scarcity in barrels. Haehn's garden Is now yielding 100 barrels a day. He expects to increase it to 2U0. The oil is wortli at the tannery $1.10 a barrel. Tho price of one barrel de frays all the expense of putting down a well. Operations are carried on day and night. That part of the city is lighted up all night by the flaming torches of the oil men. The weird scene is witnessed nightly by hun dreds of people. There are no indi cations of any decline iu the yield of this oil, and Haehn, the lucky discov erer of the field, is laying away not less than $100 a day as clear profit. There ure many theories in regard to this unheard-of presence cf petro leum in large quantities so near the surface. One is that the oil is the leakage of tanks and pine lines, which has sunk into the earth until it readied the gravelly deposit in which it is now touutl in pools. Another is that this deposit has been forced up from the true petroleum sand stratum by some unknown agency, and cauuht and retained iu the stratum where it now lies. A Funny Old Story. Tom Marshall was engaged in the trial of u case in the iuterior of Ken tucky, when a decision of the judge struck him us so bad that he rose and said : "There never was such a ruling as that since Pontius Pilate presided on the trial of Christ." 'Mr. Clerk," responded the judge, "fine Mr. Marshall $10 for contempt of court." "I confess, your Honor," continued Tom, "that what I said was a little hard on Pontius Pilate, but it is the first time in the history of Kentucky jurisprudence that it is held that to speak disrespectfully of Pontius Pilute Is contempt of court." "Mr. Clerk, make the fine $20 for a continuous contempt," said the judge solemnly. "Well, judge," Tom added, "as you won all my money lust night at poker, lend me the twenty." "Mr. Clerk," cried the judge, hastily, "remit the fine. Tho stute can afford to lose the money better than I." "I congratulate the Court upon its return to a sane conditiou," suit! Tom, resuming his seat amid roars of laughter From the Hub.
