and Distressing Accident;
On Thursday night last,‘the
ladled to the State Lunatic Hospital, at
Harrisburg, were discovered to be on fire,
about U o’clock. Every effort was grade
togave the adjoining properties by the
Harrisburg firemen, who repaired to the
ipot, fortunately with success. The large
gear thank barn, which oqst $2,000, to

implements, including.a number of cos tly
WSgOQ,a dearborn wagon, a v large;|arm
wagon, ■seven borses, a dot of chickens and

five.horses, fourteen valuable milch cows,

bushels of rye, 40 bushels of potatoes and
a number of chickens and 7 ducks. The

the (Oitizen -Engine Company

A. man who gave his name as Martin
who had been some 18 months
in the Asylum, and had been pronounced

rested as the supposed incendiary. While
in the As;lam he became so violent that
he wap finally committed to jail in Har

Tbit the effects of the war news upon
the business of this country viM be very
great cannot be questioned. Already it
has canped a considerable advance in the
price of brcadstuffe, and bids fair to make
flottriahhijg timesfor pur farmers. The
New York Tribune advises the fimners>
throughout the country to plant and sow
freely, penistendy; for grain and meat
are likely to be in demand next fall. The
wiurVhioh now threatens is unlikely to be
aphort and cannot be a little one. It is
likely tq array a million of men in arms
against each other, subtracting many times
that number from productive industry, to
employ them in casting cannon, making
powder, charging shells, etc. All these
snuatpat, and battle fields are not wall
adapted to growth of food. We shall be
disappointed if Europe does not afford ns
a large market for brcadstuffe before the
of the current year. ;

time “ Dr. Witmore,” and at another “ Dr. Lo

‘think the press of the' State owe it, as well to
the public as their own safety, to expose all
such diabolical villians. Pass him round.
j Machine poetry, likfi the sewing machine
or the photoghraph, is of modern invention; a
specimen begins thus:—
Up in Podunk, where the thistle
Blooms,’dies and rots;
Where the winter whirlwinds whistle
All aronnd'the lota.
Lives the slickest cal yon ever
Saw in ail your life':
Ankle like a blue beech lever,
Voice like a fife.'
And,the next two stanzas explain how the
poet courted the girl, who," it appears, wore a
check apron. But the denouement is sad:
And I (tuck'to her like teasels, * '
Bummer and (all;
But alic went off with the measles,

The author of the above is presumed to have
died of grief. The editor of the Carlisle
can, however, survives to grind, out to the lis
tening earth thesubjoined:—
I’ve gazed on thy beauty resplendently fair '
And, oft have admired that nutty brown hair.
While the blush o’re-your check as rapidly traveled
As a 240 buss on a rood newly graveled.
I’ve gazed on that beauty by the brilliant gas light
On that figure so graceful—so slender—«o slight
And I’ve tho’t of that beauty—that it might soon fiula
And that part of that soft hair was sorely a braid.
We decline publishing any more of this af
fecting strain, but of pity for our lady readers.

A Hobse Runs Mao. —On Thursday night
last, a horse wfiile confined in n stable in New
York, was suddenly attacked with hydrophobia.
The Post says;—The infuriated, animal tore ■
down with his teeth the manger, and then
breaking loose, dashed put of the stable door
into the yard, where he rnshcd wildly about,
and then attempted to leap over a brick wall.
He failed in this, bat continued his attempts,
although cut severely in the shoulders. A
couple of men, not knowing what was the mat
ter with the animal, approached to lead him
again to the stable, when the-horse mode a fear
ful attack upon them, tearing completely out
with his teeth, the bosom of the shirt of one of
the mien, and grasping hold of the shirt sleeve
of the ;pther. Fortunately the men were hardly
scratched, the greatest damage being done to
their clothes. A wagon' was standing in the
yard, and the enraged hors?, bowling and snort
ing with agony, seized the shaft between his
teeth, and shaking 'the vehicle violently,
wrenched jtbe shaft entirely off. \ His dreadful
distress seemed to search In this violent mabner
for some relief. At various rimes he emitted
hideous noises painful jto hear. Finally, to put
him out of misery, he was shot and killed with
a rifle. ■ V- .'
It lately, bat should apparent

“You Wouldn’t Bite a Blind Box I” —On
one of the Michigan Central Railroad Trains
the other morning, an incident occurred which
created considerable merriment. A blind boy,
who bos the run of tbe cars for the purpose of
selling knick-knacks, entered tbe sleeping oar
supposing all the inmates were up and dressed.
Walking through the car, he passed his band
along tbe berths to see if they were occupied,
when it fell upon the face of a sleeper whose
hirsute covering at once arrested tho boy’s at
tention. Stroking down the hairy coat, the boy
commenced With, “Here, puppy—here, puppy!’’
and other expressions of fondness which a lover
of the canine species wonid be likely to indulge
in. Tbe disturbed sleeper partially awoke un
der these manipulations, and, shaking his head,
gave a loud snort., The boy jumped back in af- x
fright, yelling, " Get out I you wouldn’t bite a
blind boy! take himbff!” without even yet
comprehending the truth. The passengers
roared with laughter, which did not all subside
when the boy exclaimed, “ La! I thought it
was a puppy in the berth, and not a big bull
MUft- A dreadful accident, resulting from
foolishness and carelessness combined, recently
occurred at a law school pear Gallatin/ Tennes
see, and is thus described by a correspondent of
the New York Express: “ The students were
trying (illustrating) the Sickles case in moot
court, when the young man who took the part
of Sickles, jerked out a pistol which he did not
know was ’ loaded, and shot bis most intimate
friend, Who was taking the part of Key, through'
the chest. ;Mr. Tap took the part of Sickles,
and Mr. Burke the part of Key. It is a very
sad thing, but the shot was purely accidental.
It was at first thought that Mr Burke would
recover, bat’mortification bos taken place. Mr.
Tap has suffered so much in mind that he has
two or three times tried to kill himself, bat been
prevented by bis young friends.”
■QT la Frederick, Md., on Monday night, an
attack was made on L B. Lent's circus compa
ny, while , they were performing, by * large
crowd of rowdies. Two of the circus men were
badly, hurt while protecting their property.—
Two or three of the outsiders were hurt, but not
seriously. The crowd set fire to the side can
vass, which was burnt up. They also broke one
or two wagons belonging to the circus. All the
persons got out safe. The cause of this is said
to be the price of tickets, which was fifty cents.
The coinpnuy refused to put the price at twenty*
five cents, which bad been done by others before
theni. It was feared another attack would he
made. -

fell dead upon the corpse. These unhappy

Snasrac Histoby or a Mcbdebbb.—-It was
mentioned a few days ago that Felix Sanches,
a Cuban mulatto, who, in January last, killed
bis father-in-law, ! and stabbed his wife and
mother-in-law in New York, had been arrested
at New Orleans. The Bee farther infoms u«:
He was hid away in a Spaniard’s house some
fifteen days in Now York. The Spaniard then
took him to Baltimore, and by reason of his
naturally dark skin managed to sell him as a
negro for $1,400. ; He was subsequently taken
to Mobile, where he was sold to a Mr. Brooks,
and subsequently to a Mr. Ladbctter, who sent
him here to bo sold by Mr. Foster. The latter

of a free negresa id Cuba, and the son of a weal

says, in New York, and was born in Trinidad
de Cuba. The accused doubtless had to submit
to being sold as a Slav* to prevent being exposed
as a murderer. . ’|i
Tb* Waste of Wa*;-—ln the sixteen years
intervening between 1797 *nd 1816* the French

1818 was composed ofTectaita from eighteen to
twenty years of age> Of a million ana a quar
ter raised in 1813, -only one hundred thousand
remained alive in 1814. France, in addition to
this loss of her citizens, had to pay 700,000,000
francs as an indembity of-war to the alliedpow
ors. and 400,000,000 for the support of foreign
garrisons/ These j figures show the cost of a

For expelling Worms from the
