Summit Hill, l'ennsylvnnln, tlint on
last Saturday night u heavy thunder
dorm passed over that place.

etntcrpent of nil the facts of which ho

The Orangovlllo Urnss lland proposo
giving a Concert and Exhibition, at tho
Acndqmy Hall, In that place, on tho
ovcnlng of tho 22tl of February. It
will no doubt bo a flno entertainment,
and a ratlonnl way of cclobrntlng tho
anniversary of Vnshlngton's birth-day.
Wb aro Informed that Lewis Enko of
Berwick, Is going to tnkoSmethcr's Ho
tel fltand In tho Spring. As ho undoubt
edly "knows how to keep a Hotel," wo
wish him abundant success. There Is a
flue opening for him there.
Somk of our town Subscribers havo
notdlrcctcd how they desiro their papers
delivered, whether by tho carrier, or

Office. If they will Indlcato to us where
tlioy would prefer to get them wo will
do our best to accommodnto them.
Wk cannot accede to tho request of
the Cor.u.MiiiAN to publish tho speeches
of Senator iiucicaiow. nejiuonean.
This is a srpinro back down from our
challenge, and shows that tho'editor of
tho Republican is afraid to let his people
read tho truth, though wo agreed to
publish in return, Mcrcur's speeches.
Does ho over mnko nny, or arc his
friends ashamed of thorn ?
Wi: obscrvo by tho Senate proceed
intra, that George Bancroft, tho lliatorl
uu, has been continued as Collector at
thol'ortof Boston, in place of Clcneral
Couch, rejected by the Senate.
After doing as many mean things as
ho did, to bo rejected by a Itadieal Sen
ate, is adding insult to injury. Alter
using him, kick him out and let him
think over his "glorious campaign on
tho Flshlngcreek." Wo can forgive tho
Senate this time.
The Ooi.u.miiian' begins to endorse
tho "Good Templars." This sudden
conversion is tho mot important tri
inniili tho friends of decency have
achieved for some time. The world
does not go backward, and Koine was
not (built in a day. The Coi.umiiiax
may yet bceomo respectable. Repub
That is moro than wo can say for our
cotcmporary. Wo havo not the slight-
cat hcsltatloii'In saying tho Republican
ncccr will become respectable under its
Wn trust our patrons will carefully
read tho now advertisements we publish
this week. They are of interest to all
our citizens. Wo havo so far carefully
abstainod from advertising tho dozens
of patent nostrums which crowd the
columns of our cotemporarics. Not on
ly aro many of tlicm immoral and inde
cent, but they aro useless to our people,
and keep out matters of moro local in
terest. As our paper contais tho bulk
of tho legal advertisements of tho
county,.it Is tho interest of every citizen
to tako it.
Stamps on Notiss. Promissory notes
aro liablo to a stamp duty of llvo cents
for each hundred dollars or fractional
part thorcof. If a note contains nny
special agreement, such as waiving tho
stay of execution, right to inquisition,
appeal or exemption, it is liablo to an
additional duty of flvo cents. Notes
containing a confession of Judgment aro
liable to an additional stamp duty of
ilfty cents when entered of record
Sealed notes are subject to the same flu
ty as other notes, and no more.
Von a few days past thoro hns been a
tremendous ice dam below our town,
and which threatened for a timo to sub
monro tho lower parts of it. Heavy
mosses of broken ice covered tho liver
for miles, presenting a grand and pic
turcsnuo appearance. Fears wero enter
tained for tho loss of tho auueduct, but
through tho vigilanco of Mr. Quick", it
has been saved. Tho Cotawissa rail road
bridco was slightly injured. On Wed

river has resumed its natural channel.
Tho road between hero and IUipert
which was partially submerged, Is now

thatched with plantain leaves. It was
devoted to tho manufacture of aguadl-
erne, tho favorite liquor of tho country,
which Is distilled from tho Juico of the
sugar cane, and is as colorless as "Kohr
McIIenry," nnd as strong. Wo found
at this place about -10 Indian men nnd
women, the most of them being on their
way to Quito with loads of pine apples,
oranges,niul other produce. They wero
dancing and shouting at a furious rate,
but on seeing us gathered around, wlillo

Join In their orgies, but I was moro dis
posed to sleep, and after taking a huge
gulp of uguailicnle, laid down in a mis
cellaneous group of sleepers, and did not
awake until next day near noon. My
companions of tho night previous had
resumed their Journey, and towards
night our own Indians Joined us, hav

storm. Tho heat was now intense, and
tho provisions wo had brought from
Quito spoiled. Tho natives ate snails,

Tho following day wo resumed our
march, though I was obliged to go on
foot through mud, briar and brake. On
reaching the river Alambi, however,
they had to send their animals back, as
tho path became almost impassable,and
for the additional reason also, thataspe
cics of bat, a regular vampyre, exNts In
this region, which during tho night of
ten kills even hordes by sucking their
blood. From tho Alambi each man was
obliged to carry his own effects. nnd not
being accustomed to that .style of march

pointment a serious inconvenience. To
wards evening wo reached Calial, our
destination, which proved to beauother

Having established this as a base, wo
at onco commenced our collection of
bird, plants, leptiles, and whatever else
was new, useful or singular. My timo
being my own, I spent it in hunting up
tho neighboring plantations, and liter
ally "astonished tho natives." Whrfi
over 1 went they crowded round me,
nnd expressed great wonder at my de
sire to enpturo serpents, shoot birds, &c.
For a small reward they cheerfully
helped me. 1 enjoyed wandering
through those huge forests where every
thing was ,0 new, and strange, and
wild. On ouo occasion night overlook
me some distanco from Calial, and I was
obliged to stay at a plantntiou. Llko all
others tho hut was thatched with plan
tain leaves, which grow from six to ten
feet long, and form a roof impervious
to rain. Tho tides extend tothegroundtxii
while both tho ends wero open. The
tiro of courso was in the centre, and tho
smoke found egress as best It could. My
supper consisted of fried bananiias,
omethiug liko potatoes roasted in tho
ashes, and stewed parrots. I counted
some '20 persons under tho roof, who all
seemed to belong to ono family, and to
possess all things in common. One of my
host's charming daughters devoted her
to my special amusement, though I
must say my slim knowledge of tho
Qulchua languago proved a scrloua Im
pediment. Sho was a flno looking maid,
possessing all tho characteristics of an
Indian girl, and free from many of their
of their faults. Her dress of course
would not answer in a modern ball room,
being mado on decidedly first princi
ples, yet it became her well. Sho could
make and smoke a ehjarlla with singu
lar ease, and took her chieha (Indian la,
ger) with surprising frequency. Her
only ornament was a string of beads.
and another string of inonkeya'tecth was
worn as an amulet or charm. My new
ly found friends danced fgr my entertain
ment, played thciriiatlvonlrsou instru
ments with unpronounceable names, and
at my request tho dusky eenortla at my
side sang ouo of those low, monotonous,
yet not unmusical airs, peculiar to the
race. Strange as it may seem, I enjoyed
tho adventure, and believed I could
havo spout months among such geutlo
savages. Tho head of the family finally
arose.and with proper decorum conduct
ed mo to bed by the side of himself and
wife. Tho others quietly retired to
their appropriate corners, and wo wero

It would provo tedious to reclto all
my adventures in that region. I was
generally successful in my liuntiuj
tramps, and added materially to tho col
lection. Wo secured qulto a number of
beautiful qulnlas, or humming birds,
somo few parrots, nnd it magnificent
toucan. Tho latter isasplondid bird, anil
with Its beak could cruli a walnut. AI
though tho forests abounded In serpents
of tho largest size, wo went through tho
tropical undergrowth with pantaloons
rolled abovo the knees, and often with
out boots or shoes, wearing in their
stead tho nhoqtvbi, a sandal with a solo
of plaited straw. Tho monkeys wero
abundant, and kept up a constant moan
