Biblk Society. The next concert of poblic
worship, In aid of the work of the Society now
In hand, to wit t the exploration of the entire
county, will be held in the Methodist church
in this borough on Sabbath evening, 29th in
stant, at 8 o'clock. The llcv. Dr. Aikin, of

Fibe almost, On yesterday afternoon, the
house on Judge Shaw's farm across the River,
occupied by John Reed, took fire between the
kitchen and main building, bnt the devouring
element ws fortunately extinguished belore
much damage was done. It is supposed that
'sparks from a fire in the outbuilding were
blown into the crcvico and fanned into a
fl inio by the wind. -;
Oil Sraiso. Wa learn that the surfjee of
the water in a spriog on the farm of Titus II
Bailey, in Bloom township, is covered with an
oily substance, and thi there are other indi
cations of oil deposits in the immediate neigh
borhood. - Mr. Baily should at once go to work
and havo the proper examinations made to ascertain-
whether oil -does exist there in any
'considerable quantity. ', Should it turn out fa
vorable it will be of immense advantage to him.
Brilliaxt Meteor. Last Friday evening a
bout 9 o'clock, a brilliant meteor passed 4,a
ihwart the airy vault," from the north-west to
to the south-east. It resembled much an im
mense sky-rocket, and illuminated the heav
ens and the earth in a magnificent manner. It
was a sight worth seeing, and whilst it im
pressed many with the wonderful economy of
nature,1 there were persons, here and there,
w hose superstitious notions'led them to think
that there was to be a general "smash-up of all
things sublunary, . , .. . ,
Important to Postmasters. Country post
masters should bear in mind, for their advan
tage as well as that o! the local press, that for
every county paper delivered by them to sub
scribers, they are entitled to retain of the
l'o6t office funds, ten and one half cents per
year. It is for their interest, as well as that of
the fiublisher, that the connty paper be pre
ferred, since there is no trouble of making
collection or keeping accounts thereof as on
papers printed out of the county, the commis
sion on which will not average more than from
MX to eight cents per year. - . " '
New Bell. The St. Andrew's Episcopal
congregation in this place have procured a
large amalgam bell Jor their church edifice.
It has a deep, full tone, and will be a great
convenience. A tower Is to be added to the
building as soon as possible for its accommo
dation. ? We should like to hear of the other
Muirchea in our town" procuring bells also.
T re is nothing mora impressive than the
rich, musical sounds of a number of chuicb
Wis, on a SaLIath morning, breaking the
Millnes and calling the people to their devo
tions. And this reminds us of a beautiful
comparison made by an old author. ' He says :
Prayer is the rope in the belfry we pull it
and it rings the bell up in Heaven, and so it
is. Keep that bell moving. Pull it well, and,
tho' the bell is up so high that you cannot
hear it ring, depend upon it, it can be beard
in the tower of Ilcaven, and is ringing before
the throne of God, who will send answers of
peace according to yonr faith."
A Great Will Case js North Carolina
One hundred Negroes set Free. We learn from
the Iredell Express that the case of Solomon
Halls will occupied the Superior Court of
that county eight days, and was finally com
promised after the jury bad retired. ' Mr. Hall
had made a will leaving 100 negroes and other
property to his only child, a daughter, who
afterwards married Mr.Ncely against his wish,
whereupon he made another will Jeaving his
negroes free and leaving most of bis property
u) them. . The suit was to set aside tins will.
An hour after the case had gone to the jury,
-Mrs. Neely's counsel proposed to receive
513,000 and $2,000 which tho will gave her;
the estate to pay the court costs, $800, Bhe to
pay her own lawyer $5,000.. The proposition
was accepted. The negroes will be sent to
Liberia. Ulic jury stood nine against and
three for the will; "but it is said tho judge
would have act aside the verdict if it had been
"gainst the will. u ;. ? - . : ' : -
TnE State or Europe. A raris" letter of

tains some items of interest from the French

of the People's County Convention.
0Tjr"We are requested to announce that Ed.

ple's Convention for the office of Auditor.
! . Every Summer the demand for Ilostettcr's Cele
brated Stomach Bitters inci eases. It is found to be
'the only certain preservation of bodily strength,
during a period when the atmosphere is calcula
ted to induce a feeling of lassitude-and indiges
tion.. - Tho worat cases of Diarrhor-a and Dysentery
give way before its potent influence. Innumera
ble persons, who are now alive and well, -must
thank the discoverer of this preparation that they
have not been swept away, in the harvest of death.
The Bitters is recommended by the best physicians
in the Jand. This is the best evidence of its real
value, because as a general thing, they will not
ppeak a word in favor of advertised preparat;ons.
They have been compelled to acknowledge the
claims of the Bitters upon the community. Bold
by all druggists. " ... -

LA T F. S T N E W S FItOM HARPER'S
FERItV. Brown, the leader o f the Insur
rection, Jo mid guilty of jtfurdfr anil Treason in
the Pi tat degree. Ihe above named 'insurrection'
caused a great deal of gas to be let off by leading
politicians and the political press of this great
country, and in fact, tho majority of the people, of
all parties, were more or less excited on reading
the first account of the insurrection some of the
papers trying to make political capital out of the
afl';ur and others making light of the matter.. But
if it had been an Italian strike for Freedom a
gainst their lawful sovereigh, led on by Mazzinni
or Garibaldi, the Press of this country, with but
oue exception, wouid call meetings and pass reso
lutions and solicit subscriptions to aid them in
their so called patriotic work ; but amidst all this
inconsistency there is ono man that is not the least
interested in the fate of Brown or his companions,
and that one is Frank Short of the Short Shoe
Shop on Second street, where ho will be found at
all times ready and willing to wait upon persons
calling on him for anything in the Boot, t-boe or
Gaiter line. Thankful for past favors he only asks
a continuance ot the same, and will sell as cheap
