During the extreme cold weather, which yesterday morning registered 15j^ degrees below zero, ice has been forming and ac- j cumulating around the fountain at East Filth street bridge, until there is now a j young mountain of ice surrounding the pipe, and extending above the top of it several feet. Thousands of tons have ac? cumulated, and Supt. Jennings, of the! water works, speaks of building a house around it and keeping it for summer use. It is a beautiful scene to look upon, but one pays dearly for the pleasure?if such it could be culled?if many minutes are spent in, standing oflt this kind of weather looking at it.

By some means the name of a gentleman living at Pennington Gap got on the Post's subscription list, and it has been going to him regular. This week the copy of 5th, inst., was returned from that point, with the following iustiuctions written on the wrapper: - "The Big Stone G^p Post is not lifted out of the otic please dis? continue the paper. Return to Beg Sonc gap Post once for the editor to descover." It is needless to say that the editor ''descovered." - , ?? . Palufu) Accident and Narrow Escape from Death. Last Friday evening, as the Big Stone Gap & Powell's Valley train was crossing East fifth street bridge an accident occur? red which came near costing Ed. Wheeler his life, the result of which was the breaking of his right leg, near between Wheeler was employed as braeakman, the knee aud hid joint. and had crossed the bridge time aud again, until he had become cureless. At the time of the accident he was operating ! a bruko on top of a freight car. The cross-timbers on the bridge are rather low, and, as the train approached the bridge, while ho was standing on top of the car, his shoulder came in contact with the globe of an arc light, which was sup pended at the south end of the bridge, shattering the globe to pieces. This di j verted,his attention for the time being, and he forgot about the low cross-timber ! ou the bridge. As the traiu ran on to the [ bridge, he wag struck by the cross-beams J and knocked from the car. landing on the Icrosstie of the bridge. Patties hurried j as quickly as possible to hi* assistance and found'him-in a helpless condition, ' with bis right ieg broken. Protracted Service?. An interesting protracted meeting has been in progress at the Baptist church since last Sunday week, conducted by Rev's McManaway and Kilgore, of this plncc, and Rev. Mr. Griffin, of ?Measy. Creek, Tenu. Under the pointed, scath? ing sermons of'Mr. Griffin, the forcible presentations of the truth by Dr. McMan? away and the earnest appeals of Rev*, Kil? gore, much good 'has been accomplished and an unusual interest has been mani I fested among church members. The meeting will likely continue till Sunday next. In the meantime the church has been furnished with neat and com? fortable chairs, thus rendering the able sermons delivered there during the meeting the more enjoyable to the anxious con? gregation that has daily attended these services. The 950,000 Ilond Ordinance. j In another column will be noticed a communication from Mr. J. M. Hodge, in which he refers to the ordinance to be votedon by the citizens of Big Stone Gap on the second of next month. The ordinance provides for the issu? ance of $50,000 in city bonds, for the pur? pose of street improvements, drainage, building bridge, and erecting a public school house and jail. He admits the ne? cessity of such appropriation, "provided we get the worth of the money," and re? grets the fnct that the citizens are not al? lowed to vote on the different improve? ments for which the proceeds from the sale of the bonds arc to be used, seperate* ly as to the cost of each. The council has publicly given out its idea as to about what each of the different items will cost, aud has estimated that it will take at least the amount of money? say $42,500?this amount of bonds will realize to do the work. Whether voted on as a whole or seperately, the result would be all the same. The mouey will be under the control of the city government, ill either case, and the people have un? doubted confidence in the men who com? pose that body or they never would have elected them to the positions they hold. Besides, if presented tobe voted on seper? ately possibly many different ideas would be advanced by parties who are entitled to a vote, but who pay but little or no tax, and rhe question would be of a more com? plicated nature than in its present shape. THE ??VENISON" WAS GOOD, BUT THE JOKE IS BETTER! *4 Where Ignorance Ik Bliss, 'Tis Folly to Be" Etc. J. K. Taggart, Spencer Berryman, Maj. Harrington, J. H. Jennings and several others were very profuse in their thanks for the nice treat of "venison" sent them by Willie Wax and Shaler Gilley last week. They said it was delicious?in fact the finest venison they had ever eaten. All of them considered themselves experts when it came to testing the delicious flavor of this choice meat. But, like Othello, their occupation, in the venison testing line especially, has gone glimmer? ing like the light of other days. The boys took it in their young American heads to do a little "Peck's bad boy" business, and get off a good Christmas joke, so they hied themselves to the near mountain side and slaughtered a fine sheep, and, carefully removing the skin, they came into town with two fine quarters of "sheep venison" slung across their shoulders. They cleverly divided it up and sent tempting portions of it to the above named parties, and others in town, with compliments of the season, reporting they had killed a deer on Stone mountain. It was graciously accepted, and as above stated, the boys had "hot" thanks showered upon them from all sides. The joke was too good and wouldn't keep as long as the "venison" would have kept without salt, and the boys gave away the jok? just the same as they did the sheep meat. New and Valuable Exchanges.

We, the refined, civilized people of America spread our eyes and read with awe and horror the fearful ac? counts that reach us of the bloody mil tilers and brutal acts committed by the poor heathens of Chinan, Ja pau aud other ungodly nations. How they do curdle our blood, and cause us to offer thanks that we "are not as one of them." How* onr whole heart goes out to them for pity's sake, and we feel inclined to do more for mission work than we have ever done before. But in doing this is it not something after the order of one farmer looking across his own field of corn, chocked and smothered to death by running-briars, rag-weeds and other filth and hallowing over to his- neighbor, tolling him Iths crop looked as if it. needed work Ah we forget that right under our eyes crimes as fiendish und diabolical ag hell would have them are daily be ing enacted among. ns and by the civilized (?) people -of our- own*land. But glance tlirongh a few of the newspapers published throughout our enlightened land and soon you can easily compile a list like this: Wm. H. Sbattuck, aged 22, shot and killed his 19-year old wife at Albany, N. Y., last Sunday, and then tried to com? mit suicide. Bob Ray, a negro, on the night of 1st of Dec, in an attemptt rob Randall Mc?

Charles Carroll, an illicit distiller, of Buchanan county, Va., was being pursued by two U. S. revenue officers one day last week. He took refuge in a vacant barn, and barred the door, aud was peeping out through a knot-hole. On approach? ing the barn, one of the officers laid a wager he could hit the knot-hole, and banged away with his Winchester, not knowing that Carroll was peeping through it, or even in the barn. At the crack of his gun Carroll fell dead, the ball striking him in the eye. At Charleston S. C, on (ith inst, Joseph Fisher a desporate negro, shot and killed Joseph Trescott, and seriously wounded Wm. J. Cox, two colored constables, who were trying to arrest him.

On the f)th inst., James and Will Xev ins und Jack Langdon, all cow-boys, had a fight on horse-back with Winchesters and six-shooters at "Three Hearts," in the Chocktaw Nation. Will Nevans and Langdon were killed and James Nevans fatally wounded. Some time ago Lewis Clark stole a horse from Chas. Baker, in Carter county, Tenn. Deputy Sheriff Miller tracked him to Leneoir, X.

Eastor, in the southern portion of Carroll county, Va., stabbed and killed Jeff Hanks, over an old grudge. Wm. Riddle shot and killed S. E. Shel ton near Marshall, N. C, on the 4th inst. Both were desperate characters; they were riding along the road, both drunk, when without any trouble between them Riddle whipped out a pistol and shot Shclton. A mob of 1,000 men surrounded and en? tered the court-house at Bowling Green, Ky., while the trial of Bolt Harper was in progress, charged with assault on a Miss Anderson, and seizing him, took him to the fair grounds, one mile distant, and strung him up. The trial of Jim Bond, a negro, was going on at Guthrie, Ky., for as? saulting Mrs. Lawrence Covington, when a mob of 100 men took him to a pole near the depot and sent him by the John Brown route. During a Christmas festival at Lamas co, Ky., Marshal John Cox was shot and killed by Chales Johnson, aged 20 years. Johson was creating a disturbance and Cox endeavored to quite him. At Gardnersville, Ky., a neighbor on entering the house of James Barnes found Mrs. Barnes lying across the bed dead, with her head crushed, while Mr. Barnes and a man by the name of Kerr were lying in one corner of the room, also dead, frightfully slashed with knives.
