STAR OF THE NORTH.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1859. COL. TATE is informed that Charles Cling erraan has returned that Ink to the Democrat Office, which was borrowed some two weeks eince, without our knowledge and certainly against our will, from thai establishment.— The Col. keeps a poor article; we don't wish To exchange GOOD INK for that which is de ficient in quality. So this squares us with the Col. in the Ink business nolens volens. SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—A son of Mr. Enoch ('adman was very badly injured on last Mon day, in one of the lrondate Company's mines. He was coming out of the mine when he was overtaken by one of the cars; and the drift being too narrow for him to escape, he was injured. He endeavored to get upon the car, but failed in the attempt, and the car passed over one of his legs and foot, breaking the leg in a horrible manner immediately above the ankle. It was (ear ed at first that amputation would be neces sary, but it is thought since that the fracture can be healed, although he may be lame for life. WE NOTICE a short editorial squib in the t last Columbia Democrat of this place, in re- 1 iation to running to the cities for printing done. That is all right in the Colonel; tne J public had ought to support home industry., But the public will go where they can got work done the best and cheapest. What ■do they care for your " cold shoulder;" to some of them it should have been cold years ago. We think if the Colonel con tinues on doing job work for the public, tbey will get their eyes open presently; when they can get work done neater and cheaper than he is able to do it without "running away from home." FREE LITERARY LECTURE AND READING ROOM. —The Iron City College, of Pittsburg, Pa., employs the most distinguished speak ers far its course of Lectures, held in Col lege Hall every Frioay evening, and several hundred papers and Magazines are taken each week for the Public Reading Room. These are some ol lite advantages young men gain in attending this, the largest, most popular and efficient Commercial College of the country, having now 357 students. ON LAST Wednesday a serious accident occurred on the down train of the Lacka wanna and Bloomsburg Railroad. The en gine run over a cow, damaging one of the cars, throwing it off the track, and breaking a leg for the baggage master, Mr. Tubbs.— Dr. Harrison was takeii up to the place of ac cident to set the broken limb. We under stand that the young man is doing well un der the circumstances. The cow, we learn, fared bad—died. THOMAS E. EVES, of Millville, has receiv ■ed the contract for building the fence around the ground of the Agricultutal Society, he being the lowest bidder. He also furnishes the materials for fencing,'and performs the contract at one dollar and fifty cents per pannel. This may seem to some a large price, but after the fashion the fence is re quired to be built, it is low enough ; besides we may rest assured in having a good fence. KILLED.—A cow, belonging to John Ster ner, of this place, was, on last Wednesday morning, run over by the cars on the Lackawanna and Bloomsburg Railroad, near town. The cow since has died. More care should be taken by the negligent parties, whosover they are—owners of cattle or owners of railroads. ACCIDENT.— On last Friday a valuable horse belonging lo Mr. Harvey Brumbach, was drowned in the river, about three miles be low this place. The horse and cart were used on the Lackawanna and Bloomsburg Railroad Extension. It seems that the dri ver was in the act of dumpingthe cart, when the horse backed over the bank, into the fiver, and drowned. Oua TOWN was visited on last Wednesday by STOES' Silver Cornet Band, of Danville.— They were on their way home from attend ing the celebration of Washington's Birth day at Pittston. They treated our citizens To a few of their choice pieces. This is an excellent Band. A BILL has been read in the Senate by our worthy member, REUBEN KELLER, to in corporate the "Columbia County Agricultural, Horticultural, and Mechanical Association."— The members are patiently waiting its pas sage through both branches. This bill was introduced on the llth ultimo. TH RT. REV. BISHOP BOWMAN preached at Christ Church, at Towanda, on last Thurs day, and administered the rite of confirma tion to nineteen persons. The Bishop is making a pretty general sweep over this Stale. At a meeting of the Senatorial Conference held at Lock Haveß, on the 13th ult., for the Counties of Centre, Clinton and Lycoming, Mr. T. M. HALL was elected Senatorial del egate to the Democratic Stale Convention which will meet on the 16th inst. NEW Yogx is certainly a great city.

Dear Madam—The reputation of the Med ical discovery, in curing all kind of humors, is so well established by the unanimous voice of all who have ever used it, that I need not say any thing on the subject, ss the most skilful physicians and the most careful Druggist in the country ate unani mous in its praise. In presenting (he Medical Discovery to your notice, I do it with a full knowledge of its curative power, in relieving all, and cur ing tnoat of those diseases to which you ate unfortunately so liable. The most exurUci ating disease to an affectionate mother, NURSING SORE MOUTH, Is cured as if by a miracle; your own lem ' per is restored to its natural sweetness, and your babe from short and fretful mips In calm and sweet slumbers; aud the medical discovery becomes a fountain of blessing to your husband and housholtf, lu lite advanced stages of v, \ ,\ k i: ie it extends to the stomach, causing DYSPEPSIA, which is nothing but canker on the stomach then to the iufestines and Kidneys, creating a sinking, gone tceling, and an in. difference even to the cares of your family. Your stomach is RAW AND INFLAMED, your food distresses you, and you can only lake certain kinds, and oven of lhal your system does nol gt half the nourishment it contains as the aenmonous fluid ot the cank er eats it up; then your complexion loses its bloom and becomessallow and greenish, and your best day is gone. For want of nourish j mont your system becomes loose and flabby, and the fibres of your body becomes relax J ed. Titer, follows a train of disease which the Medical Discovery is peculiarly adapted to CURE; Palpitation of the heart, pain in the side, weakness ot the soine and small of the back, pain of the hip joint when you re tire, irregularity ol ttie bowels, and also, (list most excruciating of disease, the FILE S. How many thousands ol poor women are suffering from this disease and pining away a miserable lile, and their next door neigh bor does not know the cause, 1 wish to im- I press on your mind that good old proverb, "An ounce of preve/ttion is better than a pound of cure.'' In the IQeilical l>i*eo*ei*y you have both the preventive and the cure, with this great and good quality, that it wilt never under any circumstances, do you any injury. No change of dipt ever necessary—eat the best you can get and enough of it. Directions lor use.—Adults one table spoon ful per day. Children over leu years dessert spoonful. Children from five to eight years, lea spoonful. As no directions can he appli cable to all constitutions, take sufficient to operate ou the bowels twice a day. Yours truly, DONALD KENNEDY.
