The money lost by Mrs. Hennessey at the

Mr. James K. Kver met with a most distress
ing accident 011 Monday lad, while assisting in
the repair of a pump. He was supporting the
piston by the rod when it slipped through his
left hand, and the hook striking between the
thumb and hand, tore out the fk'sh, and drew
O iu of the cords of tho arm down from the el
bow. A bono of tho hand was also broken.
Dr. Turner was called in immediately, and
dressed the wound, and though slide ing much
pain, Mr. Kycr is doing as well as could be ex
pected at lliis writing.

for the prosecution, and Hubert P. Clark and K.
It. Ikelcr, Ksqs., volunteered to defend the girl.
The testimony elicited was mutli the same as
given by us at the time of the occurrence, and Is
I'otol a fit character to bear repetition. The
principal line of defence was the weak mind of
the prisoner. After a short elellderatiou the jury
came in willi a verdict not guilty.

NORMAL SCHOOL PSNBPIT.
Tlia Drama of William Tell was presented at
the Opera House on Priday evening, by this
Troupe. The people of Illoomsburg havo
grown to feel that her amateur performers nro
In many resjiects equal to, or even better than
inot traveling companies, and therefore it was
hut natural that the announce incut of this per'
formanco was sufficient to fill tho house to over
(lowing. Mr. U. Jncoby was thu stage manager,
nnd the success witli which the play passed oil)
nltests his efficiency in that capacity. There
was not n hitch or baulk from beginning to end
Mr. Jacoby took tho character of Tell nnd did
It well. Hervey K. Smith, liq., as Gesler, ells
played considerable ability as nn actor, appear
ing at his ease on the stage. Miss lluyrd as
Kmma, Master John ltuttcr ns Albert, J. S.
Phillips as Melctal, plnvcil their parts in a pleas
ing manner ; in fact, all who appeared on the
stage, evidenced careful preparation of their
parts. Tho new scenery and costumes, obtaincel
for tills occasion, added much lo the general ef
fect, while tho stage arrangements in Ihe way of
wind, thunder and lightning, were well carried
out. rheic we ro two fcenrs tliat deserve cspc-
ciil mention; one where' Gesler loses himself
on the mountains, and has jut given up in de
spair, evhen Albert comes picking his way from
rock to rook, 111 r.dn and storm and lightning
and lescues the heartless tyrant, The other,
where Tell Is overpowered by the minions of
Gesler, ami loaded down with chains. This
scene ended with a fine tableau. The whole
play nbouueled wilh touching puts. The after
piece was a farce entitled "A Convenient Dis
tance." On Saturday evening tho performance was
repeateil for the purpose of making up the ex
ieiises, so that all the proceeds of the first even
ing could be devoted to the Normal School. The
after-piece was omitted, and in its stead a few
varieties wcie introduced, all of which were
well dono for home talent. Master M. Owen
gave a comic song and dance', iu negro charac
ter, which was encored. This was followed by
a negro lecture by G. W. Dieber, who was also
recalled. Mr. M. Hums then entertained Ihe
auilici.ce with some verv trnod clof dancimr
and he also had to come back.
Owing to the unavoidable absence of Mr. El-
well on Friday, and a previous cngagemenUby
Mr. irtou Saturday, the part of the programme
assigned to them was ncce-sariJy omitted. Those
who got up this entertainment are entitled to
much credit, and the people showed their ap
preciation of tho efforts and object of the troupe,
by a vote of thanks on Friday night. Mr. K.
Jaceiby was tho leading spirit, and to him is ac
corded the greatest merit. Mr. E. W. Kester
undertook the arduous duties of Iliisincss Agent,
mm no professional manager could have done
better. The appreciation of tho communitv
was justly shown in Ihe large audiences and the
interest of the town in the welfare of the Nor
mal School can never hereafter bo doubted.

town is evidently favoribly impres-ed with it.

Illoomsburg, Ihe county seat of Columbia

beautifully situated on the north bank of the

from Philadelphia, and .72 from WHIianiport.
It contains a number of very handsome and
well-built hoiies, and is fast growing to ben
town of importance. A yet, no water works
have be'di built, and it presents a line opening
for some outside capitalists to project them with
e-ertain success as to makiiiga paying inve stmi-ut.
From a point within two miles of the town, on
Fishing Creek, water can be conducted to an el
evation sufficiently high to give fall enough
from the reservoir to force the water to the top
of, and over the highest building. The original
cost would he about -tGO.OOl), as per estimate and
contract, and the thing would have been con
summated, but for the clause in the new Consti
tution requiring a vote of the tax-payers. Should
sonic speculative capitaii-t step in'and supply
this great need, it would pay a handsome per
eeolage on the ilivestmeut.

Ucnch, K. II. llidlcman, John K. Glrton, Sam

maker were appointed tipstaves.
The Grand Jury being called and sworn,
were charged by his Honor William Kindt at
length on the crimes of Homicide nnd Infant!
cidc, there being cases of that character to be
Intel before them. The following is the sub
stance of the charge!
At tho present session of tho Court, In addi
tion to tho ordinary business, we nro Informed
by the District Attorney, that there will bo laid
before you bills of Indictment charging homi
cide against Individuals therein named charg
ing the commission of the offense of murder j
(hat there will be two such cases, ami in one
two counts, the first charging the cinne of mur
der in the ordinary form of such indictment,
ami the second clnrging llio oflense of man
slaughter. The grand jury, upon the examina
tion of such a case, mny bud n true hill upon
one count and Ignore the other. For example,
If lliey are not satisfied that the crime of mur
der lias been committed, bill that thecase is one
of manslaughter, they may ignore the count for
murder nnd find tho count for manslaughter a
Thero being two counts of Ihls nature in the
indictment, it becomes necessary for the Omit
to explain to the jurors Ihe difference between
the ollene of murder nnd that of manslaughter.
Murder Is the killing of a reasonable crea
ture and being, in the pence of the Common
wenllb, with malice aforethought expressed or
implied. The i-sselillal ilieredhnt in llm i-rlm..
ofinurdsr is the malice1, and by this teim is not
merely meant spile and revenge, but the malice
is implied wherever the act of one nariv In.

ihe fact of malice existing is often
I mm the character of the weanon ii.ed. lr .-,
ucaiiiy weapon is useil without provocation, in
that case the crime is murder. The provocation
must be such as to show that the partv has no
lime for deliberation, has not deliberated. Fur
thermore, the WOUnd Illllst not bear trinnrnnt
disproportion to the provocation. If it t'oes,
the crime may be murder, as, if, for a trifiin"
one-use, one man slioulil shoot another down, nl
iiiinmii mere migiie no some provocation, it
would not bo e-noutih lo reduce the otll lisp In
manslaughter, in I ns state, t in rr mo nf mnr.
der is divided into degrees murder of the fl'r-t
and murder of the second degree. Murder of
the lirst ele-cree is a capital ol eiise nnd ihnnnlv
one punishable with death in this State. Mur
der ol the seconil degree is where there is an
absence of specific intent to take life. Hut thx
grand jury have nothing whatever to do with
the question of degrees of mil "der.
If the grand jury lind the case In lie. in net
of killing wilh malice, and without such provo
cation and passion as reduce it lo manslaughter,
then they find a true bill for murder, and the
traverse-jury, under the direction of the Court,
more fully given a-cerlains the degree1, so tbnt 1
need not trouble the gland jury with any nice
distinctions between murder in' the fust and in
the second de-glee, Wheiu there is a charge of
ooui iniiruer ami mansiaue,nier, 1 ileem it my
duty In explain to eon llio elillerence between
Ihe two, and that, in order to reduce an unlaw
fill killing fiom murder to manslaughter, tlieie
must bean absence of maliee ihe killing mii-t
have been done witli sulfide i.t piovocaliou,
when pa-sion was exciied and the killing was
iu the heat of blood.
In another case which will come before you,
containing two counts, there is a ebartre against
a mother lor killing her bastard chid charging
the crime of murder. The same principle ap
ply in such a case as apply iu every other case
of felonious killing.
There i in that indictment also a second
count, charging the concealment or endeavoring
to conceal the eleath of a child, which, if born
alive, would be a bastard, so that it could not
known whether the child was horn alive or
not. Ihe law does not make it a pccnal oflense
lo conceal the birth. The ollene is the con
cealing the tlmlli of a child, which, if born
alive, would be a bastard j and in order to find
mat to he the ease, the evidence must he such

THUOAT CUT I1Y ACCIDENT.
On Monday morning of last week a pain
ful accident happened to Hiram Diehl, while
engaged in butchering nt tho residenco of
Mr. Jamca Reiland, in Limestone, Upper
Augusta township, 11 few miles below Sun
bury. While engaged in cleaning a, hog
which was lying on a platform, his foot
slipped on 11 board. In falling tho elbow of
his right arm hit tho edgo of tho platform,
and 'tho knife ho held in his linnd entered
tho neck below the right jaw, nnd by the
force of tho fall was driven in nn upward di
rection nearly tho length of the bfhde. Tho
wound was 11 fearful one. The juglar voin
was not cut, but an important orery was
severed. Those who were present did all
they could to stop the bleeding by holding
the wound shut, until the nid of the doctor
could be obtained. Dr. Maitin.of Sunhury,
was sent for, who drcurd the wound, but at
last accounts tho unfortunate man wrs lyine
in an unconscious condition, with hut little
hope of his recovery. It is suppo-cd that
