The Continental, under the management of Mr. Slaymakor, has long onjoyed an extensive run of oustom, and the new proprietor will no doubt fully sustain its reputation as a 6rst-olnss clothing house. m mm-- I.

Twenty-dollar bills, al tered from fives on the First National Bank of Bos ton, are alao in circulation. Dickinson Seminary. The closing exereisea of Dickinson Seminary, at Williamsport, took place on Wednesday of lost week. We observe, by the pro ceedings, that the first speaker was our talented young friend, Ezra U.

Daugherty, pro prietor of the Sunbury Marble Yard, has a splendid variety of monuments, tombstones, Ae., at his estab lishment on the north-west corner of Market Square.

Mr. John A. Taylor, well known in this place and vicinity as a superior work man, is oonnected with this establishment. Almost a Fire. On Monday afternoon last the building in which tha America offioa is located narrowly escaped destruction by lira. Some boy threw a fire-cracker upon the roof, which, being very dry, ignited. The alarm was promptly given, and with the application of a few buokets of water the fire waa put out. We are glad that our Chief Burgess has stopped tbe aale of these dangerous play things, by notifying the venders of them that ha will enforce tha ordinanee passed by Counoil, soma lima since, prohibiting their sale in tha Borough. Wa hope tho nuisance will be speedily abated. 'Tbe Weevil in Wheat." The Harrisburg Tel tpraph says : "Notwithstanding tha croaking of a fow individuals who annually raise tha cry that tha grain crop is being ruined by weevil, eta., .we art auured by a number of the most roliabla farmers in Dauphin county that this season it is a vary bard muttor to find a single weevil in any grain field. Lat year our friend L. Minaker, Esq., brought to our office a number of wheat-beads that were com pletely riddled. To-day Mr. M. placed before us specimens from the same fur in, which, we notioe, are plump and full, without the least appearance of having been injured by any insect. This will be good news to consumers." Si'hBi'Rr Bcilpimq AasociATion. At the meet ing of the Association, on Friday night of last week, ten share of itock were sold five at $101 and five at tli'O.

On last Mondsy evening A young man named Samuel Graver, and two brothers named Lawson, residing near Lawson'i farm, in Armstrong township, about eight miles from this city, beard a very unusual commotion among the hogs, and upon proceeding to the disturbed locality, armed with an axe, and accompanied by their dogs, they porooived an enormous bear amu sing himself with one of tha porkers by catching it and lotting it go, much the same as a eat trifles with a mouse. Ho allowed them to approach quite close to him, and when they were on tbe point of cutting at him, he deliberately walked off. They pursued him so olosely that he took refuge up a tree, from which they toon dislodged him by the aid of the dogs He now started toward tho mountain, but they kept so cloeo in bis rear that be again sought safety In a tree, but was brought down as before. In this way he arrived at the mountain, and again ok his position In a tree. Tboy, however, finally brought him down, and determining to bring matters to a climax, surrounded the tree, and at soon as he reached the ground, "went fur him," and succeed ed in cutting him severoly in the ribs. At this juncture one of tho dogs sprang upon him, but bruin gave himself one of those vigorous shakes, charac teristic of the bear species, and burled the dog some twenty feet down tho bill, after which be scrambled off among the rocks and escaped. All further search for him proved fruitlosa The pig which he embraced baa since died from tbe effects. They represent him as being the largest one they had ever seen, but not at all ferooious, as he did not at any time attompt to fight. Willi amsport Gazette.
