TtMrzRA.vcE Meeting. The Washingtonian
Temperance Society will hold its quarterly

Lost is tdb Woods. Last Friday, at noon,
party, consisting of George Smcall and two
of his sons, Joseph Bailey, Calvin Bailey, Geo.
Bool and Bcnj. Hartshorn, Jr., or Pike town
ship, started out to hunt chestnuts, on the old
Indiana road, between Xcepcr's and the Gram
pian Hills road that leads to Punxsutawney.
Mr. Hartshorn was left to take care or the
dragon and horses, and put up a shelter, whilst
the others took to the woods. The party did
JOt, however, return to the placeof rendez
vous agreed-upon, that evening. Xext morn
Sog Mr. II. tired his gun several times as a sig
nal for the party, but hearing no response, he
concluded they had lost themselves. With
this impression on his mind, he hastened to
Curwensville and induced a number of persons
1 that place and vicinity to go in search of
his companions. No trace ot them was, how
ever, discovered until Sunday, about the mid
din of the da', when they were found. They
had lost their way in the dense forest, and ns
the sun had been obscured by clouds both days,
they had no guide by which to determine the
'proper course to pursue, and accordingly kept
wandering around without being ablo to extri
cate themselves from their unpleasant situa
tion. Having had nothing to cat for two days
-and nights, and exposed to the inclemency oi
tho weather, (it having rained the greater part
of the time,) when found they were in a bun
.gry and sufl'oring condition.
Why is it T that the road between Curwens-
Ule and Clearfield is in such a miserable con
dition. There is a large amount of travel
constantly going on from the one place to the
other, high tolls are charged, the road is well
located, aad yet chuck-holes and ruts have
been left unrepaired all summer, and now that
the wet weather is setting in, the road will be
come almost impassable. We don't know
where the fault lies, but it is certainly somc
where, and we trust steps will be .immediately
tka to have the road put in better condition.
The Special Court, called tor this week, is
row in session. The cause of Patchiu vs.
Laniburii, occupied the time and attention of

who won the esteem and good wishes of the
members of the Bar, and all others who form
od his acquaintance, by his affable and unas
suming manners and superior legal attain
ments. His Honor, Judgo Burnsido, will pre
aldo tho rcniaindor of the term.

seen that II. F. Naugle has received a stock
oi Watches and Jewelry at his establishment
In Shaw's Kow, Clearfield, Pa.' Persons desi

do well by giving him an early call.
Committed. On Saturday, a man named

The Prize Figutebs. Morris.ey says that

Its duties interfered with his training. He

another trial. Mr. Buchanan ought to do
.something for him.
