to cut loose from Its moorings, nnd

In all the fury and rage of evil pus
slini iiml'corruption, not a single volco
charged this Institution of nbberratlng
from its true sphere. I could entertain
you until another nun with living tro

and testify that we have seen."
In our ardor to accomplish tho noble
ends of this Institution, wo must bo

Mu. KliWAiiD M'l'llKitso.v, Clerk of

octavo volume of ail pages, which
would bo faultless In stylo If It were not
so highly figurative. It's a statement of
(lie contingent expenses of tho Houseof
Hepresentatlves, which Mr. M'I'herson
communicates In obedience to n resolu
tion of tho House of HcprcsentntlvcH
passed on (lit) ttli day; of March, 181:1,
which requires "that the Clerk deliver

communication on the first page of Mr.
M'l'herson's novel ; and tho remaining
Sit) pages aro filled with figures which
will convey to tho tax-pnyerB of tho
country a startling view of what lladl
cnllsm considers ".Stntlonory." II would
tnko a good nccounttint a week to add
up this bill, und whether it amounts to

Tho present bill of the House for the
mere Item of "stationery" Is only for n
single year. It does not Includo any of
tho laiger legitimate expenses of tho
IIoiiso the pay of members, printing of
public documents, nml so on. Hut the
mere cartage of documents, mostly ltutll
cal electioneering pamphlets printed at
tho expenso of the people, amounts to
.-1,002 fiO n year, this cartage covering
1 1,1'd loads of trash, tho bulk of which
goes to wrap bundles in grocers' shops
and to buyer uses. Thomas 11. Heaton
nml .1. H. Clark, "trooly loll" of course,
have the carting of these "loads." If
the articles of what may properly bo
called stationery are really furnished to
the members of tho House, it is proba
ble that nearly every member Intends
to set up a btatlonery shop at the closo
of Ids term as u Itepresentutlve. Inn

for their families for present uso and for

membered that every member is pre
sumed to ptirclntsu nil tho stationery ho
needs with money which ho draws for
the express purpose. There are now
101 membeis and delegates from Terrl

Is ono of the subllmcst of all the swin

death and burial" of a Representative,
there nre charged twenty-llvo and tine
half dozen kltl gloves, costing 4772, or
about four pair for each member to wear

Itr.MAinc Aiii.i'.SutiaioAi. Cask. Dr.
Smith of Llnglestow n, Dauphin county,
bus had n patient under ids charge, for
some months past, whoso case seemed
so extraordinary to him thnt ho finally
concluded to cull to hl aid the most ex
perienced surgeons nt hl command.
He accordingly sent to this city for Dr.
V. W. Itutlicrford und Dr. George
Dock, who In respond to therapiest of
Dr. Smith, proceeded, yesterday morn
ing, to meet Dr. Smith nt the bouse of
tliu patient, In Fishing Creek Valley,
some thirteen miles from this city.
The patient, Mrs. Mary Dumbnugh,
tldrly-llve years of ngo, had had a tum
or developing In her abdomen for the
last two years, ami which now attained
such enormous dimensions as to threat
en her life If not rclloved by an oper
ation. She measured around the cen
tre of her abdomen live feet and four
Inches, mid was so enormously distend
ed by tho fluid contents of this Im
mense tumor, thnt she wna confined to
her bed nml scarcely nble to breathe.
An operation was ngreul upon nnd per
formed by Drs. Dock nml Hutherford,
tho patient wns relieved nnd Is now do
ing well. L'pon measuring and weigh
ing the contents of this tumor or sac, It
wns found to yield ono hundred and
four pints of fluid making thirteen
gallons which upon being weighed
accurately, weighed One humlrttl nml
ten jmuiuh. Wo doubt whether a morn
remarkable case than this can bo found
in the records of surgery. IlarrUlntry

Hcrkshlre (Mass.) Jjtjte tells the follow
ing curious story: A man In Ilcckct,
while In tho woods for timber, had the
misfortune to "lodge" a tree, and in
order to get It down hitched his oxen
to the butt mid mado them pull. The
tree fell Into the fork of another near'
by, when th" tops overbalancing, tho
other end was Jerked twenty feet high
In the air carrying the oxen with It,
whero they remained snsponded In Im
minent danger of being choked to
denth. l'ercelvlug the trees to bo very
nearly poised, the man attempted to
drag them down by tho tall, but, ono of
these falling, ho had recourse ton fif
teen foot pole, with which by reaching
up to the tops, he could so raise It that
the oxen's hind feet could touch tho
ground, thus enabling them to catch
breath, llelng unable to sustain the
top for any length of time, ho adopted
the see-saw motion, causing the tree to
vibrato up nnd down often enough to
give ids cattle a chance to get air. Ho
continued this operation four hours be
fore aid arrived. He then climbed up
mid out nu the tree, cut off a twelve
foot log, which falling, released the ox
en, and ho "snaked" It home without

In those days, tho bell should be tolled.
Tho sexton tolled forty-nine times, in
