LOCAL AN D PERSONAL. Halloween. Last Monday evening: Halloween the anniversary of the n;-ht which, in olden times, was supposed to be the particular occasion when witch a hirie-, elves, and other mischicf-lov-jn.r loiiiis held their grand jubilee; as also the time when the ceremony of "pul liii;: the kail," "burning nuts," and other tjuaint aul superstitious customs were ob served. Quite a different, and a much more striking, performance is now indul ged in by "Young America," who, it would seem, has taken upon himself the peculiar privilege of celebrating the occa sion in a style as original as refresh ing. As soon as the shades of evening have descended, all manner of fantastic tricks and practical jokes are played off on the peaceable citizens boxes, benches, wa"ns, stepping-stones, signs, etc., are ipiietly removed from their usual position, and piled up on some spot in an exceed ingly artistic style ; fences are built over the highways, together with numerous other displays of the ingenuity of the Uon dam fairies. Although the harm done to property is generally inconsiderable, we are inclined to the belief that the custom is uure honored in the breach than in the observance. Still, as boys are boys, and ai Halloween comcth but once a year, we choa'J be content that it is no worse. Of Public Schools. The Directors of the Public Schools for the various dis tricts in the coui.ty are generally engaged jit present in examining and choosing persons to act us Teachers during the coaiing Winter. They should endeav or, so far as possible, to select citizen it' our own county for this responsible jo Mtiun. We have enough, and capable, yjua m?n and women in our midst to "tcaeh the young idea how to shoot," without goinr outsido our limits. We are also greatly iti favor of giving educa ted young ladies the Gist chance in the f remises ; from the fact that, although vouag i:in can earn a livelihood at 50111? :h.T profession, they, as a general thing, ';nn jt.

On Saturday evening last, :-.-;!u of horses, (to which was attached h ua.'ou, the sole rccupants of which bc i". a m 1:1 an lone barrel of flour, ) becoming l'niinned at some object, whether real or imaginary wc didn't learn, set off at the rite of .1:U) down Main street, seemingly with no particular point of destination in view. After proceeding in this promiscu ous manner far a couple of squares, the li.vi'lof the barrel ''caved in." Whereupon, sjts a fall in bread stuffs as then and tii re took place was never before experi- riff- l in these diggings. The horses, however, were finally checked in theirmad career, havingahnost exhausted themselves in their attempt to bring about this sud fill. Vi'e have not learned which was tiie most seriously injured the man, the horses, or the flour. TiiK Wk.vtIIKK. "Variety," 'tis said, " tho spice of life." Taking such as tute observation as the basis of our calcu H'ion, we certainly have had a "spicy" Autumn thus far, then spicy enough, in ' lf;t, to season the balance of the year. "ne day, it is warm; the next, cold ; the Ue.it, rainy ; the next, windy ; and so on, through the whole category of the various ftutes of the atmosphere. At present, we ire enjoying what is shrewdly supposed to Indian Summer it being just warm sii'aii;'h to make it too hot for an overcoat, mh I too cold to do without one.

V Mammoth Dear Shot. On last "turday, while one of our citizens was ,jut gunning, near Myers' farm, about two fn.es from town, he came in contact with a Very large black bear, which he imme- J;4t..!y firt.j upon, and, having lodged lhree balls in his body, speedily terminat- J his career.
