APPEAL BY ASSESSOR OF INTERNAL
REVENUE.— Hon. W. McSherry, As
sessor of Internal Revenue, will hold
an appeal in this place, on the loth of
June. Those interested will please
take notice. See adv't.
CHALYBEATE STRING HOUSE. —We
call attention to the advertisement of
Mr. Chenoweth's Chalybeate Spring
Hotel. The house has been greatly en
larged and is kept in the best style.
N EW FANCY GOODS.— CaII at Miss
M. Fetterly's and examine her stock
of new fancy dress and millinery goods.
Her store is well supplied with the
latest styles. See advertisement.
LOOK OUT !—Mr. W. H. H. Ralston,
Peddler for Mr. J. I. Noble's Woolen

IMPORTANT TO HEIRS OF SOLDIERS.
—ln accordance with a bill passed by
the last Congress, the heirs of Union
Soldiers who died while held as prison
ers in the South, are entitled to draw
commutation for rations for the time
intervening between .the capture and
decease of such soldiers. This com
mutation amounts to twenty-five cents
per day, and may be obtained by the
widow, if she has remained unmarried
as late as March 2, 1867.
DEATH FROM TRICHINA.—A young
man and a young woman named Bosh
died a few days ago, from this terrible
disease. They resided about six miles
FO ith-westof Greensburg. A young ia
dy named Scott, who' remained a few
dtys in the Bosh family, assisting in
caring for the sick, is dangerously ill
of the same disease.— Greensburg Ar
LOOK OUT FOR COUNTERFEITS.—
One dollar greenbacks altered to twos
are in circulation; also, counterfeit ten
dollar bills on the Third National Bank
of Philadelphia. The latter are said
to be well calculated to deceive. Look
out for both.
CURE FOR HARD TIMES. —The best
cure for hard times is to cheat the doc

keeping out of debt; the demagogues
by voting for honest men, and poverty
by being industrious, subscribe for
the BEDFORD GAZETTE, pay for it in
advance and have a clear conscience
and rest well at night.
CHURCH DEDICATION.— By Divine
permission, the German Reformed
Church at Bloody Run, this county,
will be dedicated to the worship of the
Triune God, on Sunday, June 2. A
number of ministers of the Reformed
Church have signified their willingness
to be present and participate in the
NOT YET. —Itappears that the towns
of Woodberry and St. Clairsville, which
we stated, some time.ago, had been in
corporated into boroughs, are not yet
so incorporated, the applications for
incorporation having to pass at another
term of Court. Our Democratic friends
in those places will, therefore, vote for
delegates in their respective townships,
Ho FOR SCHELLSBURG !—Messrs.
Smith and Statler, Schellsburg, have
just received a large stock of new goods.
Their variety is very large and custom
ers cannot fail to suit themselves in
quality and price. They are young
and energetic business men and deserve
a large share of the patronage of their
neighborhood. Call and see them.
THE REGULATOR. —The immortal,
unexcelledand never-to-be-rivaled Reg
ulator (Irvine and Statler's) is doing a
smashing business in boots and shoes,
muslins, &c. In queensware their bus
iness is not smashing, for their articles
in that line can't be broken. Perfu
mery, notions, etc., are regulated down
to very low figures.
A SHAD SELL. —Two weeks since
the Bellefonte Watchman stated that
"one of the boys employed in that of
fice, caught two la-ge shad at the end
of the Spring Creek Bridge, in that
place." The "bait took," and accord
ingly several gentlemen in Harrisburg
were as badly "sold" as the shad were
on being sold to Meek.
ROBBERY.—A few nights ago the
house of Jacob Ruble, of Springhill
township, in this County, was entered
by some unknown person or persons
and robbed of about seventeen hundred
dollars in money and government
bonds. We have learned of no arrests
or suspicion. This is another warning
to the people not to keep money in
their houses or on their persons.— U
SOME men are naturally good look
ing, others naturally affable in their
manners; all degrees can be improved
by being clothed in an entire new suit
to correspond with the season at the

vited to call and examine their excel
lent stock of Delaines, Calico< s, Mus
lins, &c., which are all of the latest
styles and will be sold at the most reas
BOROUGH TAXES.— Wearerequested
by the Burgess and Council to say that
on account of the extraordinary repairs
to reservoir and streets, the taxes must
be paid at once or the work stopped.
It is to be hoped that the water will
not be stopped off from the Borough,
this summer, on this account.
Laboring men must be paid and their
families supplied, or the work cannot
go on. J. W. Dickerson, Esq., has the
old duplicate and H. Nicodemus, Esq.,
the present one.
A MEAN OUTRAGE. —Last Saturday
evening the Indian Doctor(Evans)
stopped at the Eagle Hotel in this
place and had his horse put away in
the stable. The same night somebody
entered the stable and cut the horse's
tail off (the hair of it rather) close up
to the stump. The horse was damaged
to a very serious extent, but the a
mount of loss thus occasioned the Indi
an Doctor does not begin to compare
with the amount of meanness there is
in the creature that can do such an act,
no matter whether Indian, Nigger, Wal
russian or Esquimaux against whom
it is done.— Fulton Democrat.
SUDDEN D F.ATH. —On Sabbath morn
ing last, Andrew M'Laughlin, living
in Hopewell township, died very sud
denly. He was in his usual health
when he got up, ate a hearty breakfast,
and shortly afterward complained of
feeling drowsy. He then lay down,
and in a very few minutes was a corpse.
Mr. M'Laughlin was about fifty-five
years of age, and leaves a wife and sev
eral children, four of whom are quite
small. He was for several years a resi
dent of this borough.— Washington Re
AMENDED LIQUOR LAW.— We copy
from an exchange the following synop
sis of the amended liquor law passed
at the last session of the Legislature:
"It first authorizes public officers to
enforce order in drinking houses, and
arrest offenders in all acts of disorder;
it enjoins them to ferret out and report
unlicensed houses ; it forbids the giving
or selling of liquor to any member of a
family against the request of any other
members of the family; it makes the
vendor responsible for all loss or dam
age by any habitual drunkard who
may have got the liquor from him.
The sheriff or any constable or police
man may close up any place where
liquor is sold in case of a violation of
the act, but must be closed not later
than 12 o'clock at night, and must not
be opened before sunrise."
AN individual, named Kepler, Rev.
Samuel, who "once upon a time" held
forth on the street corners, in the grocer
ies and in the Court House of this place
we learn from the Rockingham Regis
ter, has turned up in Harrisonburg,
Virginia. This is not the last place in
which he will "turn up" by any means ;
if he would have the courage of ordi
nary men he would have been consid
erably further South, where his heart
was, four years ago. This place is well
rid of him. Gazette please copy.—ln
Inquirer, please notice that the GA
ZETTE has copied. We feel it to be our
duty to advertise gratis the brutality
of the dirt-eaters of the Bedford Inquir
GIPSEYS. —A band of these vagrants
have, for a week back, been encamped
in the woods near this place. They,
like all their tribe, are a swindling
pilfering set of rascals, and for the
security of chicken coops, horse flesh
and "portable property" generally, as
well as children "lying around loose,"
should be driven out of the neighbor
hood as soonas possible.— Chambersburg
We quote the above not only on ac
count of the moral idea contained, but
also because we may possibly have a
visit from the same descendants of
Pharaoh in this region, ere long.
THE BROAD TOP RAILROAD.—Un
der the present management this is one
of the best conducted Railroads in the
State. The old trestle-work has been re
placed by new, and other substantial
improvements are noticeable all along
the line. It traverses a portion of the
State exhibiting the grandest of moun
tain scenery, and leads to the Broad
Top House, adelightful summer retreat
on top of the mountains, and also to the
celebrated Bedford Springs, one of the
most fashionable resorts for physical
and mental recuperation in this coun
Travelers may rest confident that for
comfortable cars, polite attendants, fine
scenery and general safety the Broad
Top Railroad ranks fairly in the first
class.— Lewisto wn Democrat.
ACCIDENT. — On Monday morning
last Benjamin Claubaugh, a switch
tender at the head of the yard at Al
toona, was accidentally run over by an
engine and so seriously injured that he
is not expected to recover. He was in
the act of running across the track to
change the switch, when he tripped
and fell, the wheels of the engine—
which was so close upon him that it
was impossible to stop it—running
over both his legs at the knee, crushing
them in a terrible manner. His injuries
were promptly attended to, but, from
their severe nature, little or no hope is
entertained of his recovery.
Since the above was in type we learn
that Mr. Claubaugh died on Monday
afternoon about two o'clock. He was
about 30 years of age, and leaves a wife
and two children. — Hot. Standard.
GLEANINGS FR M OUR LOCAL COR
RESPONDENTS. — Our Bethel Township
correspondent writes us that the Oil
W ell tnere is still "going downward"
and that the operators feel sanguine of
success. Also that Warfordsburg is
improving; that a new dwelling and
store have been built and a merchant
from Hagcrstown is about opening a
store there, making "two stores, three
shoe shops," in that village, besides a
number of "workers in wood" and sun
dry other craftsmen in that enterpris
ing little village. He says they want
a "turner." Who will supply the de
Warfordsburg is a "live" little town
and no mistake.
From Belfast Township we learn that
the discovery of silver and gold there
is creating considerable excitement and
"prospecting" is going on there. We
were shown, a few days ago, a sample
of the shining substance and we must
confess it had the yellow glitter and
made one feel as if theremightbesome
thing "in it." May it prove that, in
this instance, the glitter is gold.—Ful
MAD DOGS. —Eleven children were
bitten a few days ago in one school dis
trict in Northampton county, by a mad
dog, and our exchanges report several
deaths by Hydrophobia in all parts of
the State. In Cumberland and Perry
counties, several horses and cattle have
become rabid and been killed.

beloved wife of Henry Diehl, aged 52 years, 2
months and 3 days.
MULLIN—At his residence in Harrison town
ship, on the 16th of April, 1867, George Mullin,
Esq., in the Blst year of his age.
The subject of the above notice was born in Cum
berland county, Pennsylvania, but came to Bed
ford county at a very early age, where he has re
sided ever since. His parents were poor, and con
sequently unable to give him the benefit of a clas
sical education, but endowed with spirit, ambition
and energy, it was but a natural result that he
should succeed in spite of any lack of culture in
this respect. He was one of a class of men to
whom no obstacle seems unsurmountable, no diffi
culty so great that it cannot be overcome by per
severance. Ever upright and honest, he won the
esteem and respect of the entire community in
which he lived. He was twice Sberiffof the coun
ty, receiving his first commission from Gov. Joseph
Heister, on the 28th of Oct., 1822, and his second
from Gov. Geo. Wolf, on Nov. 4, 1833. In 1841 he
was elected for three years to represent the 15th
Senatorial District, composed of Bedford and Som
erset counties. As a legislator, he was able and
incorruptible—conscientious in the discharge of
his duty, he ever had an eye single to the interests
of the Commonwealth and to his constituency Du
ring the six years of his official career as Sheriff,
he was indulgent and kind ; in frequent instances
preferring to assume the debts himself rather than
distress the poor, and was therefore truly styled
•'the poor man's friend." He had a wonderfully
retentive memory and an inexhaustible fund of
inf rmation ; was thoroughly posted on the politics
of the day, and could converse fluently on all sub
jects appertaining thereto, from an early date in
the history of the country, up to the last days of
his life. He was always a decided advocate of the
Union, and during the late untortuuate and un
justifiable rebellion, he stood by the Union, and
with patriotic xeal aided the Union cause in every
way ne could —contributing three of his own sons
and a grandson to the active military service of
government. In 1851 he was so muoh injured by a
fall from his horse, as to be compelled to use
crutches ever siDce, a period of over fifteen years.
Last fall a fresh injury confined him to his bed.—
For a time his recovery seemed probable, but, he
had not the vigor of youth on his side, the hand of
time for four score years, and over, pressed upon
him. His recuperative powers were gone—slowly
his sands of life ran out, until exhausted nature
yielding to the ''stern decree, succumbed—the
"dull film along his dim eye grew, and he lay,
"In the deep stillness of that dreamless state,
Of sleep that knows no waking joys again."
His sufferings were great, but he bore them with as
much fortitude as poor human nature can exercise
under such circumstances. He seldom complained,
and when he did, it was only when his pain in
creased to an agony by lifting or moving, but ever
bowed submissively to the hand that afflicted He
was a member of the Presbyterian Church for
many years i tried to be exemplary and consistent
and to walk in "all godliness and humility," so far
as he was enabled. A firm believer u tbo Bible,
and the truths of divine revelation, he literally
"searched the scriptures," and ever sought to
profit by their teachings. It is said that the pros
pect of death disarms a man of all disposition to
transact business of a worldly character. Not so
with him. Whilst "setting his house in order,"
with a view to his eternal interests, he did not ne
glect so to arrange his temporal matters that all
difficulty, as much as possible, might be obviated
after his decease. When this was accomplished
he calmly awaited his approaching dissolution. A
f- w days before his death his mind seemed to be
darkened in reference to his spiritual condition.
Upon being questioned in this respect ho replied,
"I leave that entirely with my God—l have no as
surance—only hope, only bope." Soon, however,
a heavenly light seemed to stream in upon him,
and he was happy. Almost the last act of his life
was a long and beautiful prayer in which he be
sought the divire blessing upon all mankind.
Thus he passed from earth to rejoin the compan
ionship of her, we trust, who long years before pre
ceded him to glory —she whom he loved, and to
sing with her the anthems of the redeemed. Ah !
: tis sweet to die this end to gain. Who would
cling to earth with such a home in view ? When
the dark and misty vale is pas-ed, and Heaven's
gates are thrown open to our bewildered gaze, we
behold the shining loved ones gone before—there
re-unions are perpetual; there no partings; there
no sad farewells.
"There is perpetual spring, perpetual youth ;
No joint-benumbing cold, nor scorching heat,
Famine nor age havo any being there."
