Macintosh, of this city, had seven entries in the fancy department of the recent Harford county fair, and received six premiums. Chas. Myers, of Uniontown district, husked 43 barrels of corn from 2| acres of land. Mr. Myers says if any other district can beat this it beats Babylon’s Valley. Rt. Rev. Alexander Burgess, D. D-, Bishop ofQuineey, confirmed a class of eight —six white and two colored—at Ascension Church, this city, last Saturday night. Mr. Joseph A.

Citizens along the line of the Western Mary- j land railroad west of this city can come here on the evening mail train next Wednesday, have an hour and a half at the Democratic meeting and return on the 8.45 train. Mr. George W. Albaugh had his display of fireworks last Saturday night at Belle Grove Square, though the effect was somewhat dis troyed by the high wind. There was a large crowd present, and the Westminster Band furnished good music. The county commissioners of Carroll and Howard counties met at Gorsucb'son Wednes day and awarded the building of a bridge across the Patapsco at that point to Messrs. Chas. Sehman and Henry Umbaugh, of How ard county. The abutments were contracted for at $375 and the wood work at $440. On lust Sunday morning a horse belonging to the Herr Bros., jumped over the trough of his stall and fell on his uack in the narrow passage between the stalls and feed box. His struggle attracted his owners, who took down the stall and thus freed him from his danger ous position before he had injured himself. Messrs. I. S. Weaver and W. L. Seabrook, of the Cycling Ramblers, mounted their bicy cles and took a run to Baltimore on Thurs day. They went to Falls Hill without a dismount, aud arrived at Pennsylvania avenue station in 4 hours and 34 minutes running time, the distance being a fraction over 29 miles. Mr. H. H. Power, proprietor of the City Hotel, had his face burned by an explosion of gas on Wednesday evening. Fortunately he escaped with only slight injury. Gas escaped whilst a cock was open to let water out of the pipe that supplies gas to the burner opposite the front door, and it was ignited by a light held by Mr. Power. At the invitation of the Mayor and City Council a number of business men and prop erty holders met at the Firemen’s Hall, on Wednesday evening lust, for the purpose of considering a plan looking to the improvement of the streets of Westminster. A committee was appointed to take the matter in hand and to report at a future meeting. Rev. Fathers Meyer and Devine, of the Lazarist Order, have been holding a mission in .St. John’s Church, this city, during the present week, and will close to-morrow, Sun day. The been largely attend ed by the members of the congregation and others, on several evenings the church being crowded. Three services were held each day —at 6 and 9a. m., and at 7p. m. Oh! the mud ! the horrible mud ! for health or comfort it is not good, nor yet for shoe leather. This murky weather will make us brave all things our muddy streets to pave. ’Gainst dust and mud and fire and flood, our people have resolved to struggle, and without any juggle our town shall enjoy the greatest good. They will not rest, but will do their best to lift Westminster out of the mud ! Everyone can make his own matches by cutting sedge into convenient length, then get brimstone, melt it, and dip the sedge into it for about a quarter of an inch, laying them aside to dry, which is soon done. Then get some phosphorous, melt aud dip the matches in like manner, letting them dry as before. Care must be taken to keep the fire from the material while melting, as it is inflammable. We have received more big beets. Mr. Jacob H. Babylon, on the farm of Mr. Noah , L. Stansbury, in Myers' district, brought us a red beet this week weighing 11 pounds 2 | ounces, and measuring 25 inches around. Mr. Babylon says he thought it was a Baile beet, but on pulling it up found it to be a T. Herbert Shriver one. Mr. Harry Keefer, of this city, raised a beet weighing six pounds and measuring 27 inches around. Mr. E. L. Miller, of the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company, was here on Thursday, making arrangements to establish a telcphne exchange. Preparations are now being made, and poles and wires will be put up as soon as the common council grants per- i mission. The council will meet on Monday night, November sth. It is expected the polls will be put up along the alleys, in order not to mar the appearance of the streets.

Pearson; best embroidery in silk, Miss Lizzie Shepherd, of Uniontown. Cards of invitation to the silver wedding of Rev. E. H. C. Goodwin and wife were re ceived by several members of Ascension Parish on Monday last. Rev. Mr. Goodwin was rector of Ascension Protestant Episcopal Church, Westminster, at the time of his mar riage, 25 years ago, to Miss Mary Van Bibber, daughter of the late Thomas B. Van Bibber, of this place. The organ now in use in the church was a gift to the church by Mrs. Good win before her marriage. Mr. Goodwin is acting chaplain at Governor's Island, New York. Ciipt. A. T. Shreeve died at the residence of his mother near this city, on Wedneday j night, of consumption. During the war he served in the Sixth Maryland Regiment, was wounded at the battle of the Wilderness, and lost a leg at the battle of Cold Harbor. He was appointed to a position in the Baltimore post-office under Postmaster Dennison, serv- , ing until incapacitated by ill health. Caster Post, G. A. it., of Baltimore, of which he 1 was a comrade, will take charge of the funeral, assisted by Burns Post, of this city. Capt. i Shreeve leaves a widow and one child. Ihe , funeral will take place to-day at 1 p. m., from the M. E. Church. The dramatic and humorous readings of | Mr, John Marshall, at Odd Fellows’ Hall, on Thursday evening, was an entertainment for the gratification of cultured and refined tastes, j The rain and other things combined to pre vent the attendance of a large audience. In- : deed the house was scarcely half full. Those i who had the good fortune to be present, how ever, enjoyed a rare intellectual treat. The 1 program was not elaborate, bet several of the selections were rendered with admirable j fidelity to the subject, and elicited upprecia- | live applause. We mention, as among the I most striking, the White Squall, by Thack eray; the Affair at Bath, by Dickens; the Col- I lection for the Repairs of Ballysloughguttery | Chapel, by Lever. The organ was from Mr. I A. M. Warner's establishment, and the or- 1 ganist was Mr. George Nonomaker. Weather Record lor the Week.

Considering that it was an afternoon meet ing and that the weather was unfavorable, the Republican mass meeting at the Court House | here on Monday was fairly attended, though many Democrats helped to swell the number. The meeting was called to order by Mr. W. L. Seabrook, who proposed Dr. J. J. Weaver, of Uniontown, for president. Dr. Weaver introduced Hon. Hart B. Holton, who was greeted with applause, and said he was grati fied at his reception and to see so many per sons present “There is an important election in Baltimore next Wednesday,’ said the speaker. “There the honest Democrats had united with the Republican parly to over turn ring rule, and there is an effort being made to get rid of boss rule in the state. The Democrats elected a reform Governor, but had tied his hands, and the Legislature was controlled by the bosses. If lam elected I will give you all the reform promised by the Republicans. I hope you have nominated food, honest Republicans for the Legislature. He must have an honest Legislature to have reform.’’ Mr. Holton made some other re marks in his four minutes' effort, but said nothing of any importance. Mr. R. Stockett Matthews followed. He spoke of the contest in Baltimore and the bitter denunciation of Democrats by Demo crats, and said that all the charges against the ring in the city are equally true with re fard to the state. He quoted from Governor lamilton’s letter and lauded him as the re form Governor. He then turned his atten tion to the Democratic candidate for Gov ernor, and spoke of him as a soft and silky fashionable man, without strength, moral courage or honesty of purpose. The state of ■ Maryland, he said outside of the city of Bal timore, is Republican, and any man who denies this is a liar, as is the man who asserts there has been a fair and honest election in the city of Baltimore in the last fifteen years. The career of the Republican and Democratic parties was next reviewed in the state and I country the former being landed as the party of | morality and reform, bringing countless bles sings, and the latter condemned as corrupt j and dishonest. He closed with a sarcastic i i and humorous description of the late Demo- : [ cratic convention. Col. James Wallace also spoke in the after- j noon, and Hon. Hart B. Holton, Col. J. C. , Mullifcin, Col. Wm. A. McKellip, Capt. A. I Billingslea and Wm. L. Seabrook spoke at a meeting at night. nsrlioldsbarg Items. Our farmers have sown a larger acreage of wheat this fall than they have for a number of years. Notwithstanding late seeding, the fields present a very pretty picture in their dress of green. Mrs. Sophia Sunderland, of Woodberry, 1 Baltimore county, is visiting Mrs. Joshua W. | Scllman, and Miss Annie I. Bankert, of Fred- | erick county (near McKinstry's Mills), is vis iting her friends, Misses C. Belle and EffieF. Poole. Mr. Theodore C. Stoner, who recently dis- I posed of his farm to Mr. Snyder, of Westmin- i ster, has purchased a huckster route in Penn sylvania, and on Wednesday last he removed his family to Hanover, where he will reside in j the future. A number of persons from this vicinity j were in attendance at Pimlico the present week. Religious services will be conducted by the Duukurds at Warfieldslmrg Church on Sunday morning, October 28th, at 10 o’clock, Elder Solomon Stoner officiating. In the evening the services, which will commence at 7 o'clock, will be conducted by the Y. M. C. A. As the 6th of November approaches we feel proud that we can state with assurance that our party here will vote as a unit a straight ticket, which, if followed by our sister dis tricts, means victory. WliiHeltl Items. The farmers of this neighborhood are pretty much done seeding with the exception of some rye. The dwelling house of Augustus Brown is being repaired; John T. Koontz, carpenter. Costley & Heiser, masons. Brice W. Criswell has added an addition to his residence; Geo. \V. Frizzell carpenter. George W. Frizzell has purchased a tract of land from Grove A. Shipley and has com menced building thereon. George W. is a: hard working mechanic. Success to his un dertaking. John B. T. Sellman has had his building repainted; Morelock & Tipton pain ters. William T. Bowers has had a house erected on the land that was purchased from Joel Roop; Charles R. Pickett carpenter. James H. McQuay has exchanged his pair of horses for a pair of mules. David N.

Haines car penter. Diptheria -is prevailing in a light form throughout the district. Mr. Jacob Shuster, and old defender, is ly ing very ill at his daughter’s, Mrs. Jesse Stem. Tank P. O. Items. Chicken disease is thinning the chicken and turkey crop of some of our farmers. The Sunday school held at Miller’s school house closed last Sunday until April, 1884. The school will be treated next Saturday af ternoon at the schoolhouse with confectionery. Those belonging to the school are invited to be present. John Boring has been improving his house inside, making it more convenient. Some of our fanners commenced husking corn this week. They think so much wet weather is injurious to the corn, since it has already damaged the fodder to a certain ex tent. Samuel Hoffacker has so much work in both grist and saw mill that he is obliged to run the grist mill by steam and the sawmill by water power. The district trustees visited Miller’s school on Tuesday. This was their first visit, and they termed it a “flying visit,” on account of its briefness. Aaron Miller was taken rather ill the first part of this week, but we are pleased to learn that he is able to be up and about. A protracted meeting is expected to com mence at Eberg’s schoolhouse October 28th, and at St. Peter's Church on Sunday week. Double Pipe Creek Items. Prof. J. M. Newson paid our school a brief visit last Thursday. The painters, who have for some weeks past been at work on Monocacy bridge, will finish this week. Miss Jennie Bering, or near Westminster, is visiting Miss Sallie E. Weant, of this place. Elder Hays, of Virginia, preached here on Wednesday night of last week to a large au dience. The singing class was reorganized last week under the management of L. Kemp. A num ber of new members were added. Love-feast at Rocky Ridge was held on Thursday of last week. We have been in- , formed that a set of men (?) or boys were after 1 night taking hitching straps, buggy whips, Ac., from the buggies that were hitched near the church. The political cauldron at this place has not reached the boiling point yet. We suggest that our politicians wait until after the elec- I tion. The farmers of this vicinity are about 1 through seeding. Those who are not will probably stop for this season. We notice a ] number of fields of standing corn, and very few have begun their husking. Pleasant Valley Items. Mr. Absalom Bankard has taken up his red beets, and among the lot found one which measured 24 inches in circumference and weighed 7.] pounds. Let us hear from an other in Pleasant Valley. Mr. Frederick H. Myers, of this place, met j with a very painful accident this week. While | splitting some kindling, to start the fire in the church, a piece of kindling happened to fly j up and strike him in the right eye, cutting an j ! ugly, deep gash. Dr. Jacob Rinehart was ' immediately summoned to render the neces- j 1 sary surgical attendance, and it was at first S thought that Mr. M. would lose his sight, but i j at present the eye is doing very well, and the I doctor thinks the sight is not injured, j Some of the musicians of this place met at N. H. Hester’s new building on Tuesday even | ing and organized a cornet band, to be called | the Pleasant Valley Cornet Band. Hereafter the band will occupy the upper part of Mr. N. H. Hester’s new building. The following | are the officers: President, David S. Myers; vice-president, Edward Geiman; secretary, I E. W . Devilbiss; treasurer, Win. F. Myers. Frizzell—Prugli.

Frizzell ! and Miss Ida Prugh*. of Franklin district. ] The ceremony was performed by the Rev. ! James R. Cadden in an impressive manner, and the beautiful wedding march was played by Miss Lizzie Diehl, of New Windsor. The bride and groom looked beautiful, dressed in the latest style. The ushers were Mr. Co lumbus Shipley, of Morgan Run, and Mr. Albert Crawford, of Winfield, and they both played there parts well The young couple has our congratulations. We say to the reader who has .not made arrangements yet to go and do likewise. OCTOBER. Now golden Autumn from her open lap Her fragrant bounties showers; the fields are shorn; Smiling Inward, the proud farmer views The rising pyramids that grace his yards Aud counts his large increase; his barns are stored, And groaning buddies bend beneath their load. This month was called October from being the eighth month in the year, according to the ancient Latin calendar. It seems unfortu nate that September, October, November and December, should each bear within its name a numerical designation that does not accord with its true place in the calendar. But no attempt seems to have been made to correct this obvious solecism. The Saxons called this mouth U'yumoiiaJh, or the wine-month. Poets and writers of all kinds arc never tired of praising this delightful month. Its bril liant suns, its cool brisk atmosphere, the var ied glories of the woods, the autumn fruits, i the woodland sports, all render it one of the I most enjoyable in the calendar. Alexander j Smith has superbly described it in one line: Applet! Autumn, golden-cheeked and tan. A line indeed that seems to picture the whole scene. We see the grape purpling on the trellis, the pippen golden hanging from the richly laden boughs; the ripe yellow maize bursting through its husks; the nuts dropping thickly in the forests;-the woods in their crimson and russet tints; the partridge piping in the stubble fields, and all Nature m serene and mellow radiance, filling the brimming cup of human happiness to overflowing. Explosion of Cias at the Taylor Works. j The Chambersburg, Pa., Valley Spirit of i Wednesday says : —“Shortly after five o’clock I on Monday evening last an explosion occurred at the gasoline reservoir at the Taylor Works, by which Superintendent Beck and Foreman McCollum were injured, the latter quite seri ously. A weakness of the light in the shops at that time indicated that something was in ' terfering with the supply of gas. The gen ; tlemen named, carrying a light, repaired to the * reservoir which is enclosed by a brick building j probably fourteen by sixteen feet in size, and adjacent to the main building. As soon as the door was opened and the light brought near thereto an explosion occurred, the gas leaking from the reservoir having been ignited by the flame of the lantern. Messrs. Beck j and McCollum were somewhat burned about the hands and face and both were thrown a considerable distance by the force of the ex plosion. The building surrounding the reser voir was almost wholly torn away, the roof being supported by little else than the frame of the door and a corner of the wall. The injuries to Mr. Beck and Mr. McCullum are very painful but not serious. Their escape from fatal injuries seems surprising.” The many friends of Messrs. Beck and Mc- Collum in this city, heard of the above acci dent with regret, and extend congratulations on their fortunate excape from serious injury. Orphans’ Court. Monday, October 22. —Har-y M.

[Reported for the Democratic Advocate.] The Teachers’ Association of district No. 3 (Myers’) met in the Pleasant Valley school house on Friday evening of last week. The meeting was called to order by J. N. Mark about 7i o’clock, and the minutes of the last meeting read and approved. The following officers were elected by ac clamation, viz: J. N. Mark, president; N. T. Houck, secretary; Theo. Boose, editor. After the election Mr. N. T. Houck gave a class drill in arithmetic, Mr. Theo. Boose gave a class drill on algebra, and Mr. M. F. Yeiser a class drill how to teach the alphabet. The exercises were interesting and highly appreciated by the members. Mr. J. N. Mark then spoke on “The duties a teacher owes his school and pupils.” A programme for the next - meeting was prepared, and the association adjourned to meet at Bish’s school house on Friday, the 26th inst. The Association returns thanks to Mr. Yeiser, teacher, and the trustees of Pleasant Valley school for the use of the house and lights. Arrest of Tom llnrcllnir. The Rockville, Md., Advocate of the 19th instant, says:—“Tom Harding, negro, was arrested by officer King at Brooke Grove church, this county, on Sunday last, having in his possession a horse which he had stolen from Nelson Myers, of Carroll county. After a hearing before a Justice of the Peace he was brought here Sunday night for commitment to jail, but when within a short distance of that institution he managed to free himself from the rope with which he was tied, and leaping from the wagon made his escape in the dark ness.” Harding escaped from Carroll county jail during Sheriff Wood’s term, and also during the last term of Sheriff Fringer. He is well known in the vicinity of Mt. Airy. Hcwes—Schley.

Miss Annie McCarty has been appointed superintendent of the newly started orphans' home in Hagerstown. The Christian Missionary Society at Mary land and the District of Columbia will meet in Rockville, October 30. Over a gateway near Chestertown, is a sign bearing this inscription: “A private burial ground for all agents. ’ ’ Some Chestertown parties are in corres pondence with a London agency for the pur pose of securing English servant girls. The Methodists of Hagerstown have bought what is known as the Mary Feigley properly in that town for $4,500, on which to build a j church. It is said that the money paid out for fer i tilizers in Harford county this year would I have bought all the land in the county twenty | years ago. Charles H.Ensor, who was shot near the' I line of the Maryland Central Railroad last week by Mrs. Mary Jane Hundermark, died Monday morning, about 6 o’clock, from the effects of his injuries. Mrs. Christina Banmeister, wife of a well known German citizen, of Baltimore, com mitted suicide by hanging on Wednesday morning. On the 9th inst. her husband, while intoxicated, nearly murdered her by cutting her arm with a razor. She seems to have been crazed by the fear that he would make another attempt on her life and hung herself to the bedpost by the bandages which bound her old wound. When dicovered she had been dead a long time. The cloverseed yield in Sassafras Neck, Cecil county, averages three bushels to the acre. The Cecil Whig says: “The lar gest yield we have heard of yet was one farmer who secured thirty-five bushels from ten acres, and the lowest, one who only got twenty bushels from twenty-five or thirty acres.” The Easton Gazette says. “More cloverseed has been raised in Talbot county this year than ever before. Several hullers have been in operation the last two months, and some of the machines have received as toll over two hundred bushels. On Saturday night Mr. J. L. Miller, living on East Washington street, in Hagerstown, was aroused from his sleep by some one as cending a ladder under his bed-room window. Upon looking out of his window he discovered a second ladder standing against the adjoining house, placed in that position evidently by some person for the purpose of gaining access to the house through the attic window. There was one man on each ladder and three men on the pavement. As soon as the men found they were discovered they beat a hasty retreat, leaving the ladders. A fire started at Annapolis Monday morn ing at 4 o'clock in Lewis C. Clayton’s grocery store. He kept a coal oil lamp burning, and it is supposed to have exploded. Another explosion of coal oil, or powder, followed that, awoke the neghborhood, and shook houses two squares away. The Naval Acad emy steam fire engine, manned by sailors, under Chief L. J. M. Boyd, rendered effect ive service. Ten houses and nine storerooms were destroyed. Two lives were lost, Charles Legg and his aged aunt, Miss Lizzie Watkins, whom Legg, after he was out of the house, went back to save. The estimated losses are as follows , Louis Clayton, $3,000 ; James Legg, $300; Julius C. Hall, $4,000; Joseph S. M. Basil, $20,000; Wm. T. Iglehart, $5,- 000; Misses Sands, $5,000; LewisH. Rehn, $2,000; Mrs. John Lindenborn $4,000. CATTLE DISEASE. Dr. Ward’s In vest IsatlonH—More Restric tive Measures Seeded. Dr. Robert Ward, state veterinary surgeon of Maryland, has decided that some measures must be taken to restrain traffic in animals affected with contagious diseases and all ani- j mals that have been in contact with stock so infected. The diseases at present menacing the cattle interests of Maryland are Texas fever and pleuro-pneumonia, but principally the former. He has just returned from a visit of inspection to Rolph’s wharf, in Queen Anne’s county, and found there that Mr. S. R. Hurlock has lost seven cows and six steers out of a herd of thirty-seven. He discovered three animals suffering from the primary symptoms of the disease, Texas fever, staggering in their gait, and general febrile symptoms. He had a steer killed and held a post-mor tem, which revealed splenic fever, the true Texas disease. Mr. Hurlock states that he bought a dozen head of cattle about a month j ago in Baltimore. Soon afterwards they ex hibited the Texas fever, and gave it to his ; other cattle. Becoming alarmed he shipped | ten head of steers to this same firm to be dis- | posed of. They sold these cattle, it is said, to Queenstown, in the same county. Mr. Hurlock, immediately after shipment, lost about a dozen head of cattle from the disease. Mr. Taggart, near Pikesville, has lost four j out of six young steers purchased. Other cases have been reported. Dr. Ward is in receipt of a letter from Thos. J. Edge, secre tary to the Pennsylvania board of agriculture, j in which Mr. Edge says he has made careful examination of the cases of pleuro-pneumonia ! reported by Dr. Ward along the Pennsylvania j and Maryland border, York county, and found them to be cases of Texas or splenic fever, j He will continue his investigations. Mr. Edge states that he has paid out $750 recently ! as compensation to farmers who have lost | cattle by this disease in that region. Penn- I sylvania allows compensation for cattle killed I to prevent the spread of the disease. The leading drovers of Baltimore, Dr. Ward states, show a commendable disposition to aid him in his efforts to repress the disease by adopt ing measures to prevent the sale of animals which are even suspected of the disease. Dr. Bridge, veterinary surgeon to the Penn sylvania board of agriculture of Pennsylvania, returned from Chester county recently, where, j in company with Secretary Edge, he had been making examinations into the condition of the cattle which have been affected by the recent outbreak of pleuro-pneumonia. Only | one herd, in addition to those already attacked and reported, was found to be suffering. I There are thirty-five head of cattle in this 1 herd affected, several of which were killed and j others put in quarantine. Some cattle from the other diseased herds were also killed by the surgeon’s order. Dr. Bridge says that he is now sure that the disease is under control, and that it will not spread any further. Dr. Salmon, of the United States Agricultural Department at Washington, recently visited the infected districts and obtained portions of the lungs of the diseased animals, which he will subject to microscopic examination and make a report to the department. Letter from Texas. Correspondence of the Democratic Advocate. Stockdale, Wilson County, Oct. 15,1883. Our usually quiet and unpretentious little j burg has lately put on some of the airs of a city. A fortnight ago a small grocery store I was forcibly entered at night and burglarized j to the amount of $35 in goods and 75 cents in money. The perpetrator of the act made good his escape, and has not been appre hended. Late last Thursday night the same building was fired by an incendiary, and the house with its entire contents was destroyed. | Loss about $500; no insurance. The perpe- | trator of this last outrage is not known with legal certainty. The cotton crop—though light—continues to mature, and four hundred bales have been ginned at the three gins in this immediate vi- j cinity, Peter and Wash. Barnes doing a fair proportion of the work, together with a lively j run of corn grinding. We are now enjoying delightful fall weather, \ the temperature ranging from 65° to 85° day | and night. Too warm, your northern readers will think, but very pleasant for an acclimated Texan. Wild water-fowl are rapidly coming to southern Texas, indicating that old Boreas has started on his annual migration southward. The acorn mast is abundant, upon which hundreds of hogs will fatten. Not such scale bending “whoppers” as the Advocate tells its readers about, but sufficiently corpulent to j furnish “a streak of lean and a streak of fat” in the anticipated “sassages.” We have no politics that I know of; may be an election this fall; I haven't heard anyone say. People here have an “idea in their heads” that the rebellion ended nearly twenty years ago. Foolish people! they think that the war horse is dead, the sabre broken and the rifle “busted.” Profound political peace prevails wherever I am acquainted in this state. The community is perfectly healthy so far as I know. Continued success to the Advocate, and prosperity for its readers, is the wish of Peter Barnes. Peter C. Smull, in Belvidere (N. J.) jail I awaiting trial on a charge of larceny, ate a hearty dinner on the 9th inst.. and since then has been living on water. When he began ! fasting he said he wanted to reduce himself | to such size that he could crawl through the keyhole of the jail and escape without dilli ! culty. His story now is that he has lost his | appetite. J. S. Griunell has been nominated by the Democratic State committee of Massachusetts for lieutenant-governor. Grinnell is a State Senator. Mr. Grinnell writes to the Spring field Republican that he will accept. News of*the Week. T. Jefferson Myers, clerk of the county commissioners of Adams county, Pa., is dead. Over two inches of snow fell on Wednesday at Bellows Falls, Vt. It snowed steadily all day at Hanover, N. H. The Potomac Synod, in session at Newton, N. C., on Monday chose Hanover, York coun ty, Pa., as the place for the next meeting, in October, 1884. The depot of the Shenandoah Valley Rail road at Rippon, Jefferson county. W. Va.. was burned Sunday night, together with a carload ol wheat. The registration at Boston closed Tuesday night. As nearly as can be learned, the total foot up 64,700, the largest registration ever known there. Gen. Grant is quoted as saying that unless the Democrats commit some very grave error in the House this winter nothing can prevent their election of a President in 1884. A majority of the members of the lowa Senate holding over arc opposed to prohibi tion, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press thinks that enough license Senators have been elect ed to defeat a prohibitory enactment. The assessment rolls of one hundred and fifty-five counties of Texas show an increase in taxable values of over ninety-five million dollars about last year, with fifteen counties to hear from, which will doubtless make a total increase of one hundred million dollars. In the bicycle race at Chicago, of twelve hours a day for twelve days, the score at the end of the first day (Monday) stood : Prince, 172 miles; Highara, 172; Morgan, 169; Wood side, 160: Dowse, 139; Shock, 147, and Clark, 114. Two strangers called at the farmhouse of James Crawford, near Clinton Falls, Ind., on Tuesday night, and asked for supper, and while it was being prepared knocked Mr. and Mrs. Crawford senseless with clubs and stole sls. The aged couple are not expected to recover. The orange crop of Florida this year, it is estimated, will amount to 10,000,000 oranges, or 600,000 boxes, against 330,000 boxes last year. It will require 24,000 cars to transport this crop, and as the yield promises to double every year, these figures will attain enormous proportions by the end of the present decade. The steamer City of Rio de Janeiro, which arrived at San Francisco on the 13th instant from Hong Kong, brought 77 Chinamen, each holding a trader’s certificate, which un der the treaty entitled them to land in the United States. The steamer City of Tokio, which arrived Tuesday, brought 111 more Chinamen, all holding similar certificates. It is claimed this is a device to evade the pro hibition against Chinese immigration. The people of Kingston, Pa., were startled Tuesday afternoon by a loud explosion. It was soon discovered that the Excelsior Squib Factory had been torn to pieces and that eight children employed there had been blown out with the flying timbers in every direction. The victims are between 11 and 16 years old. Mattie James, whose body is a complete crisp and filled with powder, is dying. Mary Quinn was burned to a crisp, and will die. Hattie Moss had her feet burned and was blown into a creek. She will recover. John Evans was so badly burned that he has since died. James Steele will die from his terrible burns. Lizzie Edward was seriously burned, but. may live. Mamie Norris is a mass of scarified flesh and is dying. Johnny James was terribly burned, but may recover. It is thought four more of the injured will die. A dispatch to the Boston Journal from Jamaica, Vt., says that the arrestand confes sion of two young men for counterfeiting has brought out aunique story of organized crime. Acting upon information obtained from Mer ton G. Clark, now in jail, United States offi cers found a wild gulch in the mountains, a few miles from the village, the headquarters of a criminal gang which has been coining spurious dollars. Complete counterfeiting outfits were seized. The gang is a secret so ciety numbering twenty-three members. It was organized, according to its records, on June 17. Its members are young men, 18 to 21 years old, living in South Londonberry, Jamaica, West Townsend and Wardsboro', Vt., and Ashuelot and Winchester, N. H. The band was governed by a captain, first and second officers, secretary, judge of fire arms, and a board of directors. They styled themselves the United Birds and Brothers. The gang also stole horses. Six huge ostriches were shipped from New York Saturday, bound for Orange county, Florida, where they are expected to increase and multiply. The ostriches were imported from Nubia by Charles Reiche & Brother, of New York, dealers in elephants, parrots, monkeys, &c., for Charlton Jones, who has a large plantation in Florida, and is going to practice ostrich farming as an experiment. The. climate of Orange county is almost ex actly like that of the part of Nubia from which the experimental birds came. They are the largest of their kind, and are expected to go through the journey and the change of abode without serious deteriment to their health. The ostriches will be turned loose when they reach the plantation, but will have their legs shackled so that they may not stray too far. They will be fed once a day at a house built for the purpose. When their feathers are of sufficient length the birds will be caught and plucked. Ostriches are plucked twice a year when they are five years old, and once a year when they are three years old and under five. An average ostrich yields feathers worth about SBO every time he is plucked. RELIGIOUS NOTICES. Methodist Protestant Church, Westminster —Preaching at 10.30, a. in., by Rev. T. H.
