Hakxonia t ti'B At the annual meeting ol llarmonia Clab, held last Tuesday evening, the following oflicers were elected for the ensuing year: President, John r. tneberg: ice Pres ident, Kmanuel Easter; Secretary, Julius brarnowsky; Treasurer, John Goebner: Stage manager, m. noothoian; Assistant, Louis igendrich; Property man, A. tneberg; Scene Painter.

Ihe C lub intend to pro. cure new scenery, wardrobe, and all the etcet eras, necessary to enable them to place upon iiie stage stauoarti titamas. iney are now preparing a splendid bill for their next enter- t unineut, ot wbicn due notice will be given. God At last, our Lafayette Agricultural Society has a future of promise before it. At the election of a Board of Directors, last Monday the officials chosen were: Col. John Iteid, M. V. L. SlcClelland, C O. Grimes, Alex. I amp- lull, lien. Marshall, Jackson C'order, IV. B. Steele and Thomas Bayliss, of Lafayette, and i.eore i. asson, oi nay. a oetter Hoard could hardly have been selected in the two counties represented. Men of large views. public spirited and enterprising, the affairs of the society will certatnly prosper under their management. The District Fair nrolert. ilrsi suggested and urged by the Caucasian, bids fair to be consummated at an earlyr day. And then we'll nave an exhibition, of which Lafayette Kay aud Carroll, sye, the whole Missouri Valley, will have reason to be proud. The donkey will all be found in the ring, and none in me uirectory . A Flash ur the Pah Our yonng friends Geo. McGrew, Xan Harnett and Willie Clagett, bad a hard time hunting fun, last Tuesday even ing. Intending to have a storm-party, at Capt. il-,. Harnett's, three utiles from town, they got ont a huge omnibus, drove round and collected as many fair young damsels as could be crowded into the capacious vehicle, and started. . Sud denly, some one recollected, that Oliver, the colored gentleman who was to play orchestra ior tne irouc, uaun't mane nis appearance 'I bey drove all over Nigger Town, to find him In the search, Xan Barnett tumbled over a steeD bank; but, as the heaviest end always strikes llrst, be lit on histeet, and no serious da m-age wa done, except the vehemently whispered iiu.i.-b. a, "iinu ...e uiiys were carrying on Alter riding hither and thither and von. on 1 fruitless tidilier-hunt, till ten o'clock, the party scattered tor home, laughing heartily at the j'.ke and promising faithfully never to tell it 11, iw well iney've kept tbeir pledges, this para gra t,h discloses. Cav Brilliant, jolly and delightful was tbe dinner-party, on Tuesday of last week, at tbe bachelor home of our friend, A.Stewart, three miles east of Wellington. The ample lesourcea of one of the Unet farms In tbe county, were taxed to tbe utmost, to provide an entertainmen unsurpassed by any that ha come off during tb festive season. The host, a genuine old Vir ginia gentleman, spared no pain ar expense, to insure his guests a splendid time. - Among those present, we noticed our esteemed couuiy men, M. V. I,. McClelland, Dr. P. S. Pulker son. Col. Prank Thorp, Louis Day, J. K. Creen, Merlin Jones, Iteuben, Arch and Buck Letton, and Jesse Burton. Maguillcent bill ot fare; oysters, quails, turkeys, cakes, pastries, eonf. ctions, and everything else that heart (we an, 'I exactly sertain that' the word) could wish; washed down with floods of spark ling wine, and winding np with a huge egg nog, toats, songs am; gushes of toploftical eloquence. But one drawback to lierfect en joyment; tbe fact that it was an lold stag" affair. No woman's smiles lent the crowning charm to the feast-ah! "I Smell Hi t Kaos " Last Sunday night, tbe family of Wm. Johnson, three miles east of town, had a narrow eacajie from sher manization or Cbieagony. A man who was visiting them, had been emokiug. He put bis pipe in bis s,cket, and went up stair to bed, in a room where three of Mr. Johnson's boys were sleeping two other children were asleep in the next room. A little girl iu the lower room, complained of smelling burning rags. Mrs. Johnson said: "uh, it nothing; one ol tk boys used a rag to light his candle." But tbe smell ot tire grew stronger, and a seareb was made. Mr, Johnson's oldest daughter Anally opened the door of the bovs' room, and rushed dowo stairs, nearly stifled with the smoke, ex claiming: "oil, pa, tbe bouse is all oa are!" Mr. Johnson sprang up the steps, but eame near recoiling before tbe dense volume of smoke which poured from the room. One little boy was found nearly sufficated, and another was seriously affected . The floor of tbe room wa on tire, but it was extinguished without mnxb damage. Causa of th eonBarraiion: Fire in pie not out Fellow laid bis cloth on floor Breeches pocet ignited riarae eommunicated to other clothing, and the oor. Result; Two children nearly smothered, well smoked hause, and a badlr scared family. Moral: Put your pipe ot T, before you put ll is your pocket. DOVER. cuaiiTiiai unariT itt and rnoucKiNa.

A gay and delight ful eveutng was spent, w.n ling up about eleven o'clock, with a sumptuous little supper, pre sided over by Mr. indlay and Mr. Ardinger. THE ASSEMBLY T KESBTTEKlAJt ONE. On Tuesday, tbe member of this congregation made a raid on tbeir pastor, Kev. Mr. Byers They captured him and hi family without re sistance, and proceeded to store bis house with new and excellent furniture, from Winkler's factory, including a handsome study chair which was the special gift of the children of the church. Many ot.cr valuable and necessary articles for household use were presented, and the all-potent greenbacks were not forgotten. The new extension table was then ruu out to its utmost capacity, and leaded, till it groaned under the burden , witb all the dainties and .rood le of the festive season. Tbe entertain ment closed with an earnest acknowledgement of his gratitude, by brother Byers, and au lnvo cation of Uod's blessing upon them all. RELIO-IOUS.

The Episcopal Sunday School had a beaulilul .nristmas tree, on tnursuay aiiernoon MURDER. On Christmas nigh:, a ball was given at Baetir's Cave. Whisky had flowed freely during the day, and many of tbe young men in attend- ance were more or less under ita influence. Sometime after midnight, a quarrel took place between Ferdinand launders and some one else. Dan. Chambers, a well known and popular young man, wno was one or the musicians and perfectly sober, interfered to prevent serious trouble. Saunders struck him In ihe face. Cham bers returned the blow: when Saunders stepped back, drew a revolver and deliberately shot biui through the heart. Chamber threw up bis hands, took one step forward, and leu dead. Saunders was promptly arrested and com mitted to juil to await trial. Young Chamber wa a printer by trade, a handsome. genial fellow, and universally known and ad mired. Whisky and the abominable habit of carrying concealed arms, were Ihe cause of hi death, in an effort to preserve the peace.
