Some two years since the racing
mare Australia, owned by Governor
l'.nvic, of Maryland, was so serious
ly injured while being loaded on a
ar of the l'.altimore & Ohio Kail-
. road Company, that she was with-
drawn from the racing field, lie
brought an action of damages agaiust
the Company, charging that the aeci-
dent was caused by negligence of the
railroad employees, and recovered a
verdict of $S,OUO. The Company
jtuined a new trial, and a few days
since he obtained a second verdict
for slo.dOO. The Courts of Mary
land hold the injury of a racing marc
at i.iore than five times the value a
Pennsylvania Legislature did that of
a citizen, passenger on the railroads
of this State.
The following good jury story is
credited to California: The jury had

triumphal march round a big bottle
of whiskey, from which they had all
been copiously imbibing, to the music
of a file and drum, the latter instru
ment being borne on the back of the
foreman and vigorously pounded by
the next juror, while the rest of the
happy baud were singing, "We
couldn't agree upon a verdict nohow, M
was this affable foreman's explana
tion to the Court, "and we didn't
think it was any hurt for to have a

Speaking on the subject of health
in our schools, the Laljrr, Philadel
phia, says: A copious supply of
f re-h air shouy be had by scholars,
winter and summer, as a corrective
of the lassitude, weariness, head
aches, and tendency of tho blood to
the head, which nearly all parents
find in their children, especially the
girls, after long fessions in poorly
ventilated class-rooms. Many of the
chronic maladies which affect men
and womca in the maturer years of
life arc now clearly traccr.b'e to their
school days, aud to the defects refer
red to. It is only of late years that
the sanitary side of the school sys-i
tern has been investigated by compe
tent men, who devote to its examina
tion the patient Ptudy of experienced
investigators and the intelligence of
scientific men. After every such ex

HTiit r.f Riifira!ro. nnd tl.eir iierscver-
ing ciiorts to sing and pray winsKey
sellers out of their vocation, the
women have tackled the church au
thorities with the conundrum of their
right to exhort and pray in public,
; and great is the consequent tribula-
tion that is in store for the churches.
The Presbyterians if the annexed
article be true arc attempting to
j dodge the issue, and have put in a
plea in avoidance, that is sure to re
turn at no distant day to plague the
church. The Kaltimore Aiu rri an
.thus summarises the late proceedings
of the General Assembly of that
church on the subject:
Tlit Presbyterian General Assembly lias
declined to answer the very embarrassing
question projtouuileil by one of the Illin
ois Presbyteries concerning woman's ridit
to exhort nnd pray in public. The Hock
Hiver brethren desire to know whether a
literal interpretation of the language of
St. Paul would not prohibit women from
preaching, exhorting or praying in a pro
miscuous assemblage. This overture was
referred to a committee, of which the learn
ed and polished Dr. Howard Crosby was
chairman. Dr. Crosby is a celebrated
(reek scholar, and be did not care to im
peril liis standing among linguists liy at
tempting to soften down the restrict ion laid
iqion women by the Apostle, and he repor
ted that a literal interpretation of the pas
sage referred to doc prohibit women from
preaching, exhorting or praying in pro
miscuous assemblages. This rcKrt was
warmly debated, but the accuracy of Dr.
Crosby's interpretation was not questioned.
The real matter at issue (although not ex
pressed in wordsl was whether Paul's in
junction was binding on the Christians of
this age, or whether it was ir.Ur.ded tor a
state ot society that no longer exists. The
General Assembly refused to send out Dr.
Crosby's report as a law for the churches,
but udoptcd a substitute offered by Dr.
Aiknian, which fcives discretionary jiower
to pastors and elders to crinit women to
preach, exhort or pray m promiscuous as
semblages, or to prohibit them.

Xew'York, June 2, 1S74.
THE STAtiE MOVERS" STRIKE.
Last Monday the stage drivers'
of New York struck for an advance
of wages. They had been receiving
$2,50 per day, and struck for $3,00.
Monday and Tuesday the hundreds
of thousands of people who depend up
on the stages, to get up and down town,
were compelled to fall back upon the
street cars, or walk. Half took the
street cars and the other half plodded
their weary way on foot.
It is singular how little a thing
makes or mars the happiness of the
denizen of Gotham. In this matter
of transportation, for instance, any
thing that interferes with it, in how
ever slight a degree, works discom
fort to the whole city. The transpor
tation capacity is deficient at best,
and if any one of the means of going
to and fro is withdrawn, all the other
methods are overburdened to an un
bearable degree. Hence the public
shuddered when the stage drivers
dismounted from their boxes, nnd the
stages stopped. Kroadway immedi
ately assumed a queer aspect. You
could actually cross it in safety.
The thousand stages taken off, so re
duced the number oi vehicles, that
the street lost its crowded appear
ance and liccame a quiet orderly
place.
The drivers ought to have got the
advance they asked for, for their is
nothing in the wav of labor, so severe
as theirs. They are seated on their
boxes, though it may rain, hail or
shine, seventeen hours each day, ex
cept Suhday, and the skill required
is very great. It is no small matter
to guide a stage through the great
cruiih of vehicles th at crowd Kroad way
with one eye on one side aud the
other on the other watching for pas
sengers. It is a trade that requires
years of practice.
The strike revealed a queer thing.
The custom has always been for the
drivers to receive fares. You got in
to the stage and poked your ten cents
up through a hole to the driver, who
deposited in a box, and was supposed
to turn it over to the proprietors at
the end of the round. So long as
this way of doinir thinrs continued
the Jehus never said anvthing about '
wages. They were satisfied with
?2,f0 per day, for they paid them
selves, such a salary as they saw fit.
They turned over aUhe end of the
trip what they pleased. Uut last fall
the proprietors,put in each stage, a
glass-box, into which the passengers
deposited their own fare. Then
was no more ' knockingdown." The
driver got his f2,.ro pi r d.iy, and'
nothing more or less. Then he struck i
for more pay, and for two days the!
public did without stages '
f course the drivers w ere beaten.
There arc to-day, fifty thousand able
bodied men in New York with noth
ing to do, who would jump at the
chance to get work nt $l,f0, no mat
ter wha! a. might be, and the compa
nies found enough capable of doing
this Work, and they mounted them at
once, tuid on Wednesday the trouble
was over.
Speaking of drivers there is a lc-
pend connected with Col. Kion, of
the old firm of Kipp t Krown, the
oldest stage proprietors in this city.
In those days the fare was six pence.
Kipp was on a hay loft at the termi
nal stable, and lie observed -,i unver
who had just made his trip and put
out his horses, take out his box to
make Lis return to the cashier. lie
emptied out a pile of silver sixpences
aud in an audible voice said: " I his
is f ir old Kipp; this for me," and soon
till he had divided the pile in two
parts. There happened to be an old
sixpence, ".hall I give this to oli
Kipp, or shall I keen it. he said to
himself. ''Old Kipp is a pretty good
man he shall Lave it. o, i guess
not. It's been a hot day, and I want
a mug of ale, and I'll keep it.
Just then Kipp slid down to him.
"John" said he, "you arc discharg
ed. You'll never drive stage for me
a?ain. I don't object to an even
vide, but I want you to understand
that if their is an odd sixpence, it's
mine. (Jet out you thief."
Aud the driver went his wav sad-
Iv.
j Speaking of
j "KN'OCKINU IoWX,"
, as this kind of thieving is called, it per
vades almost all kinds of, business.
Anent the stage drivers strike, I had
a conversation with a street car con
ductor yesterday.
"Lverv bodv knocks down, was
his frank confession.
"Uut what stops vou of taking
all
you want?" said I. "The money ail
passes through your hands and there
is no way of checking it."
"Averages do it," was his reply.
"They know what every trip ought
to yield. Take a fair, cool day, aud
less people take cars than in rainy or
hot days. But the owners know just
how much money will get into this
car this day, and I return money to
that amount. If my return is less
than the man behind me, 1 go. The
average is exact, and we make it.
You have noticed how anxious we
arc to "crct passengers. That is to
make a trip above the average.
"Aud the amount above the aver
age?''
A significant cough was his an
swer.
" e hate to have new men conic on
the line," he continued; ' because they
turn over for the first week or to all
that thev collect, and the company
growls at the rest of us. But we
make em knock down to the point , or
we make it Lot for em
Tl e conversation was interesting
to me, and I wanted to continue it
but ray conductor caught site at this
moment of a fat woman, two squares
off, who. mas making a frantic effort to
reach the car. and he stopped for her.
Her six cents was what he wanted to
help swell his average, and he got it.
But you can sec what chance there
is for a man to keep honest under a
svstem that compclls iiini to be a
thief in order to retain his place
And speaking of
L.vnoit,
Don't let any young or old man come
to get work at this time. 1 here is
scarcely any building in progress.
Trade is so wretchedly dull that man
ufacturers are discharging hands dai
ly. This is true of all the trades and
occupations. There are more than
fiO.OOO men doing nothing in Xcw
York this moment, and the number
is increasing hourly. Keep away
from New York. Living is fearfull v
high ; labor is scarce, and wages low.
Think of the case of poor Adolph
Lessure, yesterday. He landed wit!
his wife and two children four -.veck.-
ago. He was a skilled cabinet maker,
but could get no work. I hey con
sumed the little monev thev had, of
course, and Adolph begged. Finally,
last Tuesdav he got something to do,
and he went Lome jovfullv to his
wife to tell her that at least they had
their bread assured. She asked him
what the wages were, and he told
her, aud ran away to his newly found
work.
He returned at niirht, and found
his children crvin? and callintr for
their mamma. Half suspecting what
had happened, he rushed into their
wretched bed-room and Lis worst
fears were realized. On their poor
bed lay his wife, dead, a pan of char
coal explained her death, and on tho
stand a note addressed to bim with
these words:
Dear Ahou-h :
The wages wiil
just Iced and clothe you and the
children. I go. farewell!
Marie.
And so it was! The poor woman,
loving her husband and children bet
ter than she loved herself, deliberate
ly embraced the hereafter rather than
to shorten their supplies by the
amount that she should consume.
Poor woman! Let us Lope that in
the next world the crime of seli'inur
der will be balanced by the motive
that led to it.
MODERX PRINKIXii CUSTOMS.
The drinking customs of society
form a curious topic of study. One
hundred years ago people of Anglo
Saxon stock drank coarse, alcoholic
drinks to the most beastly excess.
The habit was universal, aud practic
ed openly and without disgrace.
Men of all degrees literally u alloucil
in drunkenness, and the number of
bottles a sound drinker could put
under his belt and live was a matter
of proud uoasting.
Tho refinement, and. it may be
added, the hvpocrisr, of modern
society Las changed all this, nnd
made it disreputable to drink deeply,
and, in many parts of our own coun
try, to drink at all. But in fact is
there less consumption of alcoholic
drinks than went on a century ago ?
I believe the amount consumed will
be found to be about the same per
head, and that the various temper
ance movements Lave not essentially
lessened the amount used. The way
of using it has changed and what
was formerly practiced openly is
now done in secret, and orgies which
would have set Knglish society a
blushing in the time of the Georges,
are now occuring under the safe roofs
of many a brown stone dwelling
along the avenues. I know a lady
and she is not the only one of great '
attractiveness and power, well born, !
well bred and imparting all "race to
a high social station, who goes to In-d
with almost nightly regularity in
s
situation oi inebriety. Jler husband
and a few intimate friends know of
her misfortune, and all means Lave
failed to cheek her secret consump
tion of wine. If we could lift off the
roofs ofthe Louses ofthe great city,
here secrecy is easy and temptation:;
thick and powerful, we should be
staggered at the disclosures, and be
lieve what I think is true, that while
society change and modifies viees
it has ns. many nt one time as an
other. 1
And now that I think of it, I don't
believe that utinking is any more a
secret than it used to be. Walk
through Water or any of the low
streets in Xew York and you will
sec whole blocks of rum mills, at
which liquor is sold openly and with
out concealment. (Jo up into the re
spectable portion of the city, and it
is just as bad. There is not a : block
on Broadway which docs not contain
a dozen, and oa the side streets the
number L; c.ppalling. A man doing
business on Wall Street, and living
in Fourteenth, w ill jiass on the way
up town, not less than two-hundred
drinking places. And they all do
business. They pay from $."j000 ti
$12,000 per annum rent, and the
amount of alcoholic beverages that
niu-t be sold to pa)' this expense may
be imagined. The milleiiiiini is not
yet at hand.
THE WEATHER
continues glorious. New York has
the most magnificent springs of any
city on the globe. The weather is
warm, but the air is bracing and
healthy. But woe to the dwellers
here a month hence.

OI K IVAMUMiKlV I.ETTEK.
Washington, 1. C, June 9.
We have to report continued dullness
in Congress, as regards questions of
importance to the general w elfare,
though some of the debaU-s have been
of local interest, and others not with
out a touch of tartness and humor.
Thus there was the question of pass
ports furnished to people who are go
ing aboard. Years ago the price- of
a passport was $2. then during the
war it was raised to $.", and after
wards pas-sports were made free.
The proposition was to renew tho fee
of $".nnd one would nut think there
was much milk in a cocoanut of that
kind; but there was. Butler wanted
to raise the price to $20, because it
would fall on the rich, who aio the
only people who go aboard, and be
cause it would tend to keep people at
home. People he said, go on abroad
and spend their money and impover
ish the country, and buy all their
clothes there, thus cheating the tail
ors, and the weavers at home, of
their chance of work, and robbing the
government of revenue, while they
get false and aristocratic notions in
to their Lead-, and all sorts of ex
travagant and oolish ideas. At this
Holman oi Indiana, plumped down
upon Butler,ou accusation that he was
the enemy of the poor naturlued man,
who after having been ir. this coun
try a few years and voted, wanted
to return to the old country and dis
play the broad seal of the Slate De
partment to the astonished gaze of
the potentates of Kuropc, as evidence
of citizenship and to protect them
from the tyranny of Kuropean Mon
archies, and Butler, he said, wanted
these poor men to pay their $20. for
the privilege. Then Butler said if
a man was poor he could go without
a passport, as four fifths or them did,
and llolman said Butler's face was as
good as a passport, but the joke about
Huller's face is so old that no laughed.
The amount of it all was that -10,000
persons go abroad of whom 0,000 get
passports, aud the rest go without.
A tax of $.", would probably induce
the whole to go without, and a tax of
$2, would yield ten or twelve thous
and dollars. The price was fixed
at $.".
There was some debate on the
"bark" question in which Butler,
Conger, Bradly and others, embarked
in the interests of their constituents.
The New York and Michigan farmers
are in favor of a tariff upon bark,
and the Kastern tanners and shoe
manufacturers are opposed to it.
Mr. Conger was the champion of the
farmers, and carried his point.
After so many month's of rumro
concerning the intentions of Mr.
Kiehardson. he has at last coueluded
to leave the treasury. Jle was nom
inated judge of the Court of Claims,
and Mr. Kristow of Kentucky for
Secretary, on Monday. Bristow as
Solicitor General, made favorable im
pression Lere,'as he is able, genial,
and popular iu manners. Consider
ing the panic, Mr. Kiehardson leaves
the Treasury in good condition, the
debt the past year having been' re
duced two and a half millions.
General Butler got a bill to a third
reading on Monday to allow women
to practice law in the U. S. Courts. Mr.
Dawes pushed through the Tariff bill
on the same day, ami a large busi
ness was done with many measures
of minor importance.
We have to report a case of unhap
piness Dawes, of Mass. Four j'cars
ago.'hc opened up on the Chorpen
ning claim aud staked his reputa
tion before the country, that it was a
fraud. " He made out, that tho man
had not done half the service he pre
tended; Lad been more than twice
paid andwasclaiming.it the third
time; that he smuggled bills through
Congress, right under the very nose
of Dawes himself, and then bam
boozled Creswcll into making him an
award of halt a million, when ho had
been doubly paid already. Dawes
said he bad the proofs, and said it so
boldly, that no one disputed him, and
Chorpenning and his claim went
into history as frauds, with
Creswcll nick-named after him as a
co-swindler. In his stump siteeches,
Mr. Dawes from that day made a
great handle of vigilcnco iu, the mat
ter or this claim, and thought folks
could'nt sec exactly Low lie made
out that Chorpenning Creswcll was
all right, and Chorpenning alone a
stupendous fraud, they accepted the
latter as a fixed fact
But Chorpenning , demanded a
hearing, aud kept demanding,' w hile
Dawes stood up and threatened anni
hilation to the man who should ven
ture to ask it for him. This session
however, Johu Cessna not having the
fear of Dawes before his eyes, got in
a petition for a hearing, for his., con
stituent, and .Lad it referred,. to the
Judiciary Committee. Thi commit
tee has eleven lawyers on it, the
greatest in the Jlonse; among them
Butler, Poland, Frvc, Tremaine,
Clarkson N. Potter "and Eldridge.
republicans nnd democrats. They
investigated. They asked Dawes for
his "proofs," but Dawes never came,
nor bis proofs. , lhey asked again,
but there was no answer. They read
his old speech, and studied it, and
analyzed it, and got all the evidence
they could hear of, and then reported
to the House, that Chorpenninr chal
lenged the severest scrutiny, submit
ted himself for examination, demand-.
fwl o full intrnclirmftrtn nnl o Ti ... 11 I
their search and effort, they had
their search
unanimously concluded that the Gov-
ernmeut was
in debt to him. This
conclusion knocks Dawes off his stilts,
and into the mud. He thinks the
man has been over iaid, and twice
paid, and Las Lumbugged a w hole
Congress, and he Las the proofs; but
a dozen able lawyers after examining
the papers, with Dawr.s' rlub over
llu ir heads, find that his proofs are
no proofs, and that Chorpenning
has been improperly aud illegally
kept out of his. money for many years.
Such a rejiort in the face of the public
sentiment, could only come from deep
Teonviction, ntid it leaves Dawes in a
sad plight, as he must have prostitu
ted his influence and talents to deny
justice to a citizen and rob him of his
good name at the same time. They
reported a bill sending the case to
tlic Court of Claims to fix tho amount
on the evidence, and as tho only
thing against the claim, is the stump
speech of Dawes, Chorpenning will
get his money, the committee of law
yers imt regarding that ; peci b as
roof.
Holiest John Cr.-.-ua has. made his
mark, by courageously meeting the
violent and unreasoning opposition
loan investigation of this claim.
On Thursday, Mr. Prist w, the
new Secretary of the Treasury sli p
ped into the shoes of Mr. Kichard.-on.
Th! contrast in personal appearance
of the two, is as marked as the dili'er
enrc in public favor. Kiehardson is
a pale faced, diminutive person,
and Kristow a ruddy bluff-looking
Kentucky giant-like person, who
could hold his own in a wrestling or
boxing match with the best of them.
He received the Bureau officers with
cordiality and ease of manner, and
produced a favorable impression.
Mr Kiehardson has been more pop
ular in the Department than Boutwell,
but owing to the panic and the state
of finances he has had a rough time
generally, and thedemands upon him,
no Secretary could have satisfactorily
met.
The Illinois editors, and their
wives, have been here on an excur
sion, and visited the White House
under the escort of the gallant Sena
tor Logan, marching up there in tin?
rain from Willard's.
Both Houses have be?:i discussing
Internal Improvement measures, the
opening of the mouths of the Missis
sippi being the principal. I Ins open
ing of mouths it is contended, will
greatly facilitate the feeding of the
hungry, but the opening of so many
mouths iu Congress is likely to result
in keeping the Mississippi mouths

Bkm.efonte, June -1. The ninth
annual reunion of the Pennsylvania
reserves, held in this charming town
to-day, surpassed any former meetings
of that association. A detailed de
tachment of cadets from the agricul
tural college fired a morning gun. at
snnrise and a national salute at noon.
Business was entirely suspended
and thousands of people from this
and adjoining counties thronged the
streets during the day and evening.
From every house in and about the
town flags were displayed and arches
of bunting with appropriate words
of welcome suspended in the streets.
Never did a people give greater evi
dence of resrard for the veterans of
the corps. A procession nearly a
mile long, consisting of reserves
and other soldiers of the war of 1S12,
a section of artillery and citizens on
foot, paraded the principal streets,
with eleven bands of music playing
lively and patriotic airs.
Gen. W. H. Blair acU'd as chief
marshal. In the court house yard
were long rows of tables loaded with
provisions, which Were served to the
soldiers by the fair ladies of Centre
county. In the afternoon the busi
ness meeting of the association was
held iu the court house, President
Currin in the chair. The address of
welcome delivered by (Jen. James A.
Beaver and song composed for the
occasion by Mr. Joseph W. Fury
were vociferously rpplaudcd.
The oration of Col. B. A. M'Coy
was a most creditable effort. He re
viewed many recollections of other
days well nigh forgotten. He stated
this fact not generally known that
while the reserves fired the first shot
of the army of the Patomac the first
flag of truce receivedjfrcm Gen. Lee at
Appottomax court house was through
the pickets of the veteran reserves.
Speeches were made by Col. Mann,
of Philadelphia, and tx-Govcrnor
Curtin.
While they were speaking Col. W.
Forney, of the Philadelphia iV xs,
entertained the thousands w ho could
not get inside with an able and elo
quent speech. Never was such en
thusiasm displayed, especially when
the speakers referred in a kindly man
ner to the people of the south. The
utterances of Gen. Beaver, who lost
a leg in the service, could not have
been of a more friendly character.
Mr. Curtin was rc-eleeted president
of the association. The following ad
ditional officers were re-elected:
Yicc rr. s'dcnts. Col. Wm. B. Mann,
Captain Wm. M'Clelland, Colonel
John Taylor; secretary, Charles
Dcvine; recording secretary, Colonel
Chill Hazzard; treasurer, J. H.
Killingsworth. The committee ad
journed to meet nt Williamsport on
the first ruesday of June next. Gen
eral Martin D. Hardin, of Chicago,
was elected orator, with General
Jesse Merrill as alternate. Subse
quently the procesion reformed and
lifter parading a short time halted in
front of Governor Curtin's elegant
mansion where speeches were deli er
cd by that gentleman, Col. Forney,
Hon, W. Mackey, Chaplau Keale and
Gen. Ilartshorne.
In the evening the display of fire
works was the grandest ever seen
outside of Philadelphia, nt the time
tin; different bands were serena
ding the citizens and ' distinguished
visitors, of whom there were quite a
number. This demonstration shows
w hat an affection exists for Pennsyl
vania's great war government.
There was no disturbance on the
streets. Bellcfontc being a local op
tion town, nor any of that disorderly
conduct which generally manifests
itself on such occasions. But three
of the reserve soldiers were present
from Western Pennsylvania.
Ksillrmul Litigation.
The action in ejectment brought
by tho Mouut Pleasant and Broad-
ford Railroad Company against the
Lonnellsville Kailroad Company was
tried iu Greeusburg last week, and
on Saturday the jury returned a ver
dict for the plaintiff." Judge Sterrett,
of this county, wlio occupied thci
Bench, instructed the jury that the
Counellsville Company had violated
the terms ofthe leaso by which the
Mount Pleasant and Broadford Koad
was held, in not furnishing requisite
rolling stock and not paying the ren
tal at the time agreed upon. The
case, will go to the Supreme Court
on a writ of error.

Nkvv York, June 2. Mrs. Michael
Devine, who lives with her husband,
and three children at No. ?," North
Eighth street, Brooklyn, K. D., this
morning, shortly after arising, came
behind her husband and struck him
a violent blow on the head with a
cooper's adze. He rushed to t e Sta
tion house and had his wound dress
ed. Oliicers immediately start. 1 for
the house, and on arriving there dis
covered that the woman had murder
ed her three children Maggie, James
and Timothy aged, respectively,
seven, four and two years old. It
appears that after her husband left
the houso she seized a large flatiron
and beat the children's bruins out
wilh it. On being asked why 'sh
had murdered her children sin? said
that she wad going to Heaven, and
wanted her children to go before her.
Devine's skull is fractured, and his
injuries will probably prove fatal. He
has been on a strike for a week past,
and thinks that led to his wife's de
rangement. It has been ascertained
that Mrs. Devine was about a year
ago an inmate of the King's County
Lunatic Asylum, and was thought to
have entirely recovered. She is only
twenty-six years of age. It appears
that only Devine and his wife arose
early, and while the latter was pre
paring breakfast they had a discusion
about his resuming work. When he
thought the matter had been dropped
she came suddenly behind him and
dealt him two powerful blows on the
head with a cooper's hammer, frac
turing his skull front and back.
While he w as out to the Station
House she took a flatiron in each
hand, and going to the bedroom where
her children were sleeping, absolutely
pounded their brains out. The skull
of the eldest child, .Maggie, was mash
ed into small pieces, and the faces of
the other two were hardly recogniza
ble. Blood was spattered cVer the
walls as high as the ceiling. The
husband was removed to a hospital,
and is said to be sinking fast.

A I'nited States Government Ser
vice detective arrived in New York
with a warrant from Governor Hart
ranft, of Pennsylvania, for Levi
Saunders a wealthy cattle dealer at
Waynesborough, Franklin County,
Pa., charged with extensive forgeries
on the Franklin County Bank, at
Chambersburg. The officers tracked
him from New York to the Suspen
sion Bridge, Niagra Falls, and found
him boarding on the Canada side,
under the name of Jarvis Stevens.
The postmaster on the American side
enticed Lint across to get a letter, and
he was arrested as he was stepping
off the Grand Trunk cars. He was
taken to Pennsylvania under the re
quisition upon Gov. Dix, and after
being fully identified was locked up
in the Franklin County jail on Satur
day. The prisoner has 1 ecu a fugitive
since lsT2. He is charged, among
other acts, with having forged the
signatures of Simon Lccrono and J.
Nieodemus, two rich Pennsylvania
stock speculators, as indorsement on
five checks of $2,f00 caeh, which he
drew on the Union Bank of Philadel
phia, where he had an account. He
passed four of thenotcson the Frank
lin County Bank, but on presenting
the fifth one Mr. Johnson, the bank
cashier, refused to discount it, because
of some disrepaney in the figures.
Subsequent investigation revealed all
the forgeries, and also showed that
Saunders had personally sent all the
checks, except the four named, a day
before they matured at the Union
Bank. Saunders is also accused of
stealing several thousand dollars be
longing to an estate for which he was
assignee. Detectives have been look
ing for him for two years.

PiTTsiiLtniii, June C. Coroner
Mc Cillin yesterday was summoned
to Long Kun Station, on the Connells-
ville Kailroad, four miles above Mc
Keespoi t, to hold an inquest on the
bodies of Kichard Mack, about forty
years of age, and his little six year
old daughter, Maggie, who Lad been
run over by a freight train and killed.
From the testimony it appeared that
Mack and his son came from New
Cnstle, Pa., about two weeks ago,
and obtained employment at the brick
works of (Jeorge Baird, about one
mile above the scene of the accident
Mack came to this citv on Wednes
day to fetch home his little daughter
.Maggie who was making a visit at
the house of Mr. Andrew Flynn on
Magec street. He started back on
the evening train accompanied by
his daughter, but the two got off at
Mckeesport. I hey left McKeesport
about half-past si.x o'clock the same
evening, and when last seen alive
Mack ,vas standing on the track, be
tween nine cud ten o'clock. This was
within two hundred yards of where
the bodies were found. The remains

Jefferson vii.ee, I no., June 0.
John McDermott. a saloon-keeper of
this city, said to be under the influ
ence of liquor most of the time, com
mitted a horrible murder at C o'clock
this evening. He had been in the
habit f abusing his wife, who, it is
said, was equally abusive of him.
She left him, and had applied for a
divorce. Trial was set for Wednes
day next. McDermott called at his
residence, where his wife was, asking
her to come back and live with him
which she agreed to on Monday.
He then left the house and returned
in ten minutes with a large navy
revolver, and found Mrs. McDermott
nursing her baby. He raised the
weapon and deliberately fired ut her.
The ball struck the baby in the fore
head, passing clear througn its head
and lodging in the breast of its moth
er, producing probably a fatal wound.
He then placed the revolver to his
head and blew his own brains out.
The baby died instantly, and but
little hopes are entertained for the
recovery of its mother.

j Senator Stewart, of Nevado, has
proposed an amendment to the Cou
I stitution us follow.-:
I Artk i.k IC. If any Stale shall
fail to maintain a common shool sys
tem, under which all persons Let w een
the ages of five and eighteen years,
not incapacitated for the same shall
receive, free of charge, such elementa
ry education as Congres;s may pre
scribe the Congress shall have power
to establish therein such a system,
and cause the same to be maintained
at the expense of such State.
Thisj's one of the most important
amendments that I. as ever been sul -mittcd
to Congress. The constitution
imposes upon Congress the guarantee
to every Slate :i republican form of
government. Now there can be no
such form of government, either in
form or in spirit, with education.
We are rapidly coining to tho doc
trine that ignorance is crime, and cer
tainly it is a crime against the State.
It is more necessary to build school
houses than jails, and quite as impor
tant to send children to school to pre
serve the quarantine at our ports.
We trust the Senator will press this
amendment, or one similar to it in
spirit, and that it will commend itself
to the prompt nnd intelligent consid
eration of Congress.

got away from their keepers. They
rushed into the sidewalks and knock
ed down Mrs. Scxih Harold an elder

longing to Mrs. Shirpley in her arms.
Mrs. Harold was struck upon the
head by one of the buffaloes and rc
ceired a terrible gash several inches
in length. She also had Ler right
hip broken. Tho baby received a
blow upon the temple which render
ed it unconscious and produced
spasms, from which it is feared it will
not recover. The buffaloes ran down
the street, but were soon under con
trol of their keeper. The excitement
at the t:me wr.9 intense, and a number
were crushed and bruised by the
erowd. A team became frightened
and ran into a carriage, in which
there were two ladies and a child
who were thrown out nnd dragged

Our town was about one-third burned
to-day. The fire commenced near
the old Courtright warehouse and
burned all the warehouses along the
canal, the liery stable, ami all the
wooden bnildiugs back of the Court
right v Shriek's brick building, then
across Centre street, taking all the
buildings south of Centre and two
west of Main street, to the next cross
street, stopping at the house of .Mrs.
Charles Hammond.
. About forty-five buildings were
burned in all, near the centre of the
town, rendering about twenty fami
lies homeless. The mayor of Krie
was telegraphed to for "a steamer,
which was promptly sent by special
train, but arrived too late to assist in
putting out the fire, as it was already
under control. It. however, did c-ood
service in putting out the burning
neons ana preventing the further
spreading of the fire, thus relieving
our tired citizens, who were com
pletely exhausted. -
Great praise is due to the Mayor
of K rie and thc fire department, of
that cit y for their promptness in send.
ing their steamer, and to Messrs.
Kimball and Bates, managers of the
Krie and Pitttsbnrg railroad.-for their
promptness in sendinsr the sneeial

is about" one hundred thousand dol
