then went to Mr. Licher’s tayern, wher:
they remained until about three o'clock 1m
the sficrnoon : when they went down the
turnpike road, with the view, as they said,
ot going over the mountains, but returned
in the evening, and left it again about 8 o
clock. In Greensburg,on the evening ol
the robbery, they purchased some files and
a centre bit. Two keys that appeared to
hagye beor recently made, one of them cu:
iy constructed, were found in the
neighborhood. ;
Parties of men pursued in every direc-
tion. They were traced to this place and
over the Monongohela bridge. Rober

ed the parsuit, and overtook and apprehen-
ded them about 12 miles on this side of
Wheeling. They were brought to this
city on Thursday evening last, and on Fri-
day morning taken to Greensburg lor trial.
Ii bas been discovered that these fel.
Jows had a vesidence neay this place, and
John Dougherty was apprehendet! on sus:
picion of being concerned with them and
harboring them. Upon svatch being made
in his house, were found a pair of saddle
bags, a portmantea, two vices, a brace and
a bit, a pair of shoes with square boxes in
the heels, and in each box small copper
piates, with 2, 10,20, 50, cngraved on them
for the purpose, no doubt, of altering bank
Dougherty being alarmed, communicat-
ed to some persons that he could show
where the watches were hid, and accord
ingly sheriff Stewart; with several othe:
entlemen accompanied him to nezr where
fe lived, about 4 miles from this place, he
found concealed ing deep hole a keg con-
taining 231 of the watches which had been
stolen. -
At the same time that we record the a-
‘bove, it gives us satistaction to state, that
‘the notorious Lewis who robbed our fel-
dow citizen Mr, M’Clelland, has been re-
taken after having broke jail. The gover-
‘not of Pennsylvania has been censured for
liberating this man from the penitentiary
a few months ago ; this however is unjust,
this artful & daring robber had conducted
himself while confined, with great apparent
penitence, and all persons concerned rep.
resented the case in such a manner to the
exccutive, that he was perfectly right in
‘curtailing the period of his confinement.—
It is “astonishing what a terror Lewis's
name excites on the mountains; for some
* time after the robbery no individual wotld
travel alone, and even the stage drivers
were infected with terror when they ar-
~ rived at a solitary spot. :

rmountains will he made the sceme of

SNYDER, late governor of Pennsylvania,
aged sixty years and four days.
On the 5th he became confined by an{ang policy
attack of the typhus fever, which, in less
than four days, terminated his invaluable

lady and his five children ; to the irrepara-

and of a communityy which will lang and

It is not for the limits of a cursory para-
graph, or the sketches of a feeble hand, to
attempt the delineation of a public, or pri-
vate life so various, to exemplary, so full
of interest, instruction and excellence, as
that of Governor Snyder. His life presents
an ample range, and a theme eminently
adapted to the talents of a biographer of
the first order; his course was that of a
man who rose by his own inherent virtue
and energy, endeared to the hearts of
thousands of personal friends, and who
without courting popularity, was distin-
guished in public lite, by the pre-eminent
attachment of the people of his native

The examples of promising much and

be too striking and numerous, as well with
editors of public prints as with the manu-

rofessions, to present no outline of the

remarkable operation was wrought on the
body of William M’Kee, of Centre county,
by Dr. Benjamin Olmstead, tog cther with
the assistance of the undersigners. The
complaint was a dislocated Hip, which had
baffled all the skill of physicians, and their
exertions were of none effect. The bear-
er, Dr. Benjamin Olmstead, relaxed said
hip, by the help of his ointment, without
pain or distress, and the hip is gaining
strength very fast. The sinews were so
relaxed that it appears to us'that any joint
may be replaced; for the patient, Wil-
liam M’Kee’s, was of twelve months stand-
ing. As witness cur hands at Nittany
