The Prince Imperial of France Killed.
A London dispatch of Juno 20th, says :
Tho official account of Princo Napoleon's
death says ''The Trincc, with Lieutenant
Carey, of the Ninety-eighth Regiment, six
men and ono Zulu, left tho camp at Uletzi
Mountaiu, seven miles beyond tho Black riv
er, on tho 1st instant, for a reconnoisance.
The party halted and unsaddled when ten
miles from camp.- Just as tho Princo gave
tho order to remount a volley was fired from
an ambush in long grass. Lieutenant Carey
and four of the troopers returned to the camp
and reported that tbo Prince and two troopers
wero missing. From their statements there
could bo no doubt that tho Prince was kill
ed." A dispatch to tho Daily News says
that tho Princo Imperial had been bent for
ward by tho Quartermaster General to select
a sito for the next camp. When tho volley
was fired not a single Zulu was to bo seen.
Tho party dispersed and sought safety under
cover. Tho Prince was novcr seen alive
again. His horse joined Lieutenant Carey's
party on tho road back to the camp.
When tho body of tho Prince was found it
lay on the back. There wero eighteen ass
egai stabs in it, two of them piercing tho
bo ly from tho chest to the back, two in tho
side, and one destroying tho right. A locket
with hair medallions and a reliquary, was
found around tho neck. Tbo faco wore a
placid expression. Ho had evidently inef
fectually tried to mount, and the leather of
nap tearing ho ran along tho path to where
ho was found. Two troopers lay near the
body, both having been assegaied. The
Princo was very adventurous. A dispatch to
tho Timet says that tho body was discovered
among long grass, three hundred yards from
a kraal. There was no bullet wound, but
seventeen assegai wounds were in tho front of
tbo body. Tbo clothes had been taken, but
round tho neck was a chain with a locket. A
stretcher of lances was formed and the body
borne by General Marshall and Officers Drury,
Lowe and Stewart, of tho Seventeenth Lau
ccrs, to meet the ambulance, by which it was
brought hither with an escort. There was a
funeral parade in tho afternoon. Deep sor

A correspondent, in a recent issue ef the
Williamsport Banner, inquired "Whether
or not a Supervisor is compelled to afford
tax-payers an opportunity to work out their
road taxes ?" Tho question was referred by
the editor to Clinton Lloyd, Esq., who re
plied that tho inquiry could be "best answer
ed in tho languago of the law itself. The
act of 1834 provides as follows : The Super
visors aud Overseers of the Poor of every
township shall cause fair duplicates to be
mado of tho rates or assessments by them
respectively ; and shall issue their warrant,
with such duplicates, to the collector of such
rates and levies, therein authorizing and re
quiring him to demand and receive from
every person iu such duplicate named, tho
sum wherewith such person stands charg
ed. "Provided before the issuing tho duplicate
and warrant for tho collection of road taxes,
it shall bo tho duty of the Supervisors of
every township to give notice to all persons
rated for such taxes, by advertisement or oth
erwise, to attend at such times and places as
such Supervisors may direct, so as to give
such persons full opportunity to wort out
their rcspectivo taxes.
"I cite the following decisions of the Su
preme Court of Pennsylvania on the above
statuto : Tho opportunity to work outthe
taxes is a condition precedent to the issuing
of a warrant for their collection. Milton vs.
Gorman, 38 Pa. St. Rep. 809 ; Supervisors
can make no contracts, tbe effect of which
must bo to deprive tax-payers of tho privi
lege to work out their taxes, Childs vs.

A Illind Man's Duel.
A peculiar duel occurred in the days when
Mississippi liver steamers were the scenes of
constant carousals and quarrels. Capt- West,
one of the fiercest habitues of the steamer,
one day accused a gentleman on the deck of
impertinently staring at him, 'I am not
looking at you,' calmly replied tho stranger,
his eyes meanwhile fixed in a stony glare up
on the duelist's face. 'But you are sir I' 'I
am not." Tbo captain turned away, but a
short time afterward he felt thoso stony eyes
again upon him, and following all his move
ments. Stepping up to the stranger he in
quired with suppressed passion : 'Can you
fight as well as look ?' 'Porhapa so. I never
tried. Place me, howovcr, in position and I
will do my best.' Tho singular conduot of tbe
stranger had by this time attracted universal
attention. A short time the yeane! rounded
to a landing for wood, and tho parties to the
impromptu duel went ashore. Tbe stranger
was led off by a negro servant, who seeming'
ly picked his way. But the time allotted
for preliminaries was brief, and the men
were speedily put iu position. The word
was given and two ringing reports flashed out
in the air. Capt. West fell pierced to the
heart. The stranger stood erect, calm and
diguificd. His second rushed up to him :
Are you hurt, Bir ?' No ; how is it with my
antagonist?' 'Cant you see? You have kill
ed him.' 'No ; I am unable to see.' 'You
can't see?' 'No; I am blindl' And so he
proved to be. The tragedy was a nine-day's
wonder, and all sorts of rumors were rife as to
the identity of the fatal stranger. But who
he was and whither ho went was a mystery
never solved. Courier Journal.

KIIIOD3' MEKTIM1 AT M'fiLVIiiLE.
Not out of curiosity, nor for tho purpose
of criticism,, for at one period of my life fur.
ten years I had 'often attended, but feeling
need of a revival of strength of both body
and mind on last Friday morning, being a
clear, cool day, in company with selected
friends we" repaired the village of Mlllvllle,
when and where, from our knowledge of
their custom, we knew the society of Mends
wero holding their Half-1 early .Meeting,
Promptly nt ten o'clock A. M , after a dp
llghlful ten iiillss drive along Ihewalersof
the Little KNIilngcreek, we entered the gate
of their beautiful grounds planted with
shade trees as lliey are and Improved with a
urge brick meeting house (they don t call It
church) plain and unpalnted ; for tbo ac
commodation of their worshippers and
friendi and with shedding for the comfort of
horses, surrounded and intersected with
posts and raillne for tethering horses ; and
ol course entered the house at once in order
to procure a sent. It was more than sixteen
years since I sat "pell-bound, in the samo
place, lor one hour held by the words of Dr.
Georgo Truman, of Philadelphia, whtsotlls
course, for beauty of thought, stylo of ex
pression, and power of scriptural and re
ligious argument was to my mind never sur
passed. Since that mournful period, (for
his subject was ou, and during, tho late
war) great changes havo taken place. My
boyish years have passed away and with
them have passed most of the aged and the
reading friends of that Meeting, and many of
the young, whose earnest and pure friend
ship I shall never forget ; and I was pleased
to notice that the younger ones are dignify
ing and filling the places left vacant by their
fathers, mothers and friends. And while
counting and recounting the departed ones
whose remains slumber In that quiet and
modest grave-yard, I could hardly realize
the happy beiug that I was twenty yeais
ago In their midst, at tiuios thoughtless and
giddy, Indiscreet and faulty, full of energy
and animiteu with thoughts of various
pursuits; enjoying their unnumbered kind
nesses exercised not towards me only but to
all around me. But the various events of
twenty years have not effaced tbe remem
brance, of tbe kind hearts and willing hands
that administered to my comforts and pleas
ure not only In health, but who, in my sick-
not", almost unto dealu, gave their private
apartments, their means, their skill, and
their time, day and night, to aid in, and
insure my ncovery. These clrouuistniio-a
may seem trilling to the reader, but on this
occasion they were br mghlback so distinct
ly to my mind that I relate them as belnt;
characteristic of the Friendi and with the re
spect and admiration that a child regards
dutiful partnts; and had it not Into for
some bitter recollections arising from
wrongs ou my part, tbe whole train of

gathering and being seated, I was also forci
bly reminded of the ancient expression of
their persecutors "See how these Quakers
love each other" "The Society will never
be put down while they continue to be oou
noc ted by such a tie." "If we let these
quakers alone they ill take the trade of the
nation out of our hands" aud when I speak
of persecutors I mean tho-.e that reigued in
the days of Ge irge Fox, their lauious found
er who lived aud preached in the seventeenth
century, u contemporary of Chief Justice
sir .Matthew Hale, Oliver Cromwell, Win
Penn, It.iUrt Btrclay, Thomas Elwood,
Georgo Whitehead, Thomas Green, and
many other eminent nun all of wh m have
testified in their writings of his greatness
"Tbe blood of the martyrs is the seed of the
Church" seems to be especially true of these
people, for Fox and bis followers both in
this aud foreign countries met with much
severe, disgraceful and cruel persecution
during his ministry of nearly fitly years.
He was knocked down while publicly speak
ing ; set upou by do&s aud dragged to tbe
ground ; arrested aud trequenlly imprisoned
for years in damp colli leaky cells, his bed-
clothing, and clothes often becoming wet
from storm and rain, leaking through the
roof, and never allowed fire to dry them. At
one time be fas rcutenced to forfeit all bis
property and be imprisoned for lifo ; yet
after fourteen months cruel confinement he
was offered a pardon, but being sensible that
he had done no wrong, and thinking that
tbe acceptance of a pardon would look like
giving countenance to tbe unjiM proceeding
against him refused to accept it ; and being
brought by Aa4u corpiu before Sir Matthew
Hale, he 'wilh other judges, ou account of
good reports of Fox, proclaimed bis liberty.
His followers were frequently unjustly con
demned, executed and banished. He
traveled much to speak to the people in
England, Ireland and America, preaching to
all classes Including both Negroes and In
dians, It was Justice (or rather Injustice)
Gervas Ueunet who Pilate-like, when he
was persuaded and knew that Fox had done
no wrong, sent him to prison and fi.at gave
the friends the derisive name of ''Quakers"
because George Fox bid him "tremble at the
words of the Lord." His health became so
impaired from tbe hardships suffured by rea
son of bis long and close confinement in bad
place and tbe cruel treatment he received
from the bands of his persecutors, that with
a cold and benumbed body, swollen limbs,
weakened frame, and pale countenance, he
died In London, the country of his birth, in
1600 in the C7th year of bis age. William
Penn, one of lii many biographers sajs of
bim "He was civil beyond all forms of breed
lug In his behaviour ;" very temperate ; eat
ing little and sleeping less ; be was of an
innocent life no busybody ; no self-seeker,
neither touehy nor critioal. So meek, con
tented, modest, easy, steady ; it was a pleas
are to be iu his company, A most merciful
man, asready to forgive, as unapt to take
offeuoe. His ministry was deep searching
and powerlul. He excelled in prayer, tbe
inwardness and weight of his spirit ; the
reverence and solemnity of bis address and
behaviour j the fewness, firmness and full'
neas of his words, struck strangers with ad
miration, as they reached others with con
solation. The most awful living, reverent
frame I ever felt or beheld, I must say was
his In prayer. Thomas El wood, says of bim
among othtr things, "He was valiant for
the truth ; behold In asserting it; patient in
suffering for it ; unwearied in laboring in it;
steady in his testimony to it ; deep iu divine
knowledge and immovable as a rock ; grace'
ful in countenance, sound in judgment
ready iu giving, discreet in keeping counsel
manly In nersonage ; grave iu gesture ;
courteous Iu conversation ; weighty in com
municatiou ; Instructive in discourse ; and
free from affectation in speech or carriage,"
And these bis followers endeavor to put in
practice bis teachings, living iu love of vir
tue and that holy, plain way In which be
lived. Thus I mused for one half hour,
when tbe large house was filled to overflow
lug, the Isles and double-seats all being
crowded and solemn silence reigned. Just
then that "still small voice" by which they
are governed, moved a lady Friend to a brief
address of tceicome. A few minutes after
another lady spoke on the subject of love.

The next speaker was an aged gentleman

Few thought, one week ago, that Congress
would, to-day, bo further from adjournment
than it seemed to be then,but there has been
another veto and political weather prophets,
even the wisest, are all at sea, and in a fog
at that as to the time of adjournment. It
may be that a want of a quorum will be the
final solution ofthe vexed deadlock between
the respective ends of the avenue. Some
senators and members bavo tied ou political
questions and hied across the Atlantic
Ocean, others have seceded to their respec
tive states, where they have engagements to
deliver addresses at college and seminary
commencements, and, it is not improbable
that statesmen, even without a formal ad
journment, will soon be as rare at tbe Capi
tol as statesmanship has ever been. The
delightful, oool, days of the past week were
sufficient to reconcile the most indolent pol
iticians to the parallel of Washington, but

A conference of leading Republicans was
held during the session of the House yester
day for the purpose of discussing, with a
view to harmonizing tbe action of the min
ority, in case a resolution providing for an
adjournment sine die should be introduced
before tbe judicial appropriation bill is
finally disposed of. The conference was very
brief, and it was decided that tbe Republi
can members should oppose any such reso
lution by voting against It, and that tbey
should pursue the same course if an attempt
to exteud the appropriations for judicial ex
penses should be made, but in neither case
resort to parliamentary tactics to defeat the
plans of tho majority,
A canvass of tbe House of Representa
tives yesterday, immediately after tbe read
ing of the President's message vetoing the
bill making appropriations for the judicial
expenses of tbe Government, developed that
there wero three distinct propositions enter
talned by the majority as the most practica
bio to be punued. Tbe one having appar
enlly the largest number of supporters con
templated a resolution fixing a time for ad
journment tine die, and that another bill
identical In its provisions with the vetoed
measure, be passed and sent to tbe President
and if he should again return it without bis
approval adjourn and permit tbe bill to fail.
A second proposition was to pass a joint res
olution extending until next January appro
priatlon's on the basis ofthe present actprO'
viding for ju llcial expenses, with a proviso
that no portion ol tbe money thus appro
priated shall be used for the payment of
deputy marshals or supervisors of elections,
and In tbe event ofthe non-approval of the
President to adjourn sine die, and if he
Bhould issue a proclamation reconvening
Congress, to repeat this actiou. The third
proposition favors an adjournment without
a further attempt to meet tbe views of the
Executive, This line of action was not fa-
vorab'y entertained but by a few, TheDem
ocratic party of the House, however, an
pear to stand as a unit against supporting
any bill which will permit tbe continuance
of deputy marshals and supervisors rf eleo
tions. A Cabinet Officer, In discussing the
situation with a member of the house yes
terday, said if the majority should again
pais a bill similar to the ono just vetoed the
President would return it without his algna
ture, and If Congress should adjourn he
would call them together the next day, But
if they should a third time send bim the
bill and adjourn he would not reconvene
them, and thus throw tbe responsibility of
closing tbe courts on the Democratic party,

STRAWBRIDGE & CLOTHIER
IVT. W. Gor. Eighth and Market Sts.,
In tlio faco of everything, Wantimakcr & Hrovn increased
their great Clothing business last year at Oak I Iall nearly a quarter
of a million dollars, and for 1S79 the new plans will make the
house more popular and increase the business much more.
Eighteen years in the people's service at the old corner of Sixth
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no house in the United States sells any-'
thing like so much Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
In Philadelphia sells more than a quarter as many goods as
Mr. Wanamaker sells hi Clothing alone. Doing this large
business shows the people's regard for our goods, and enables us
o buy cheaply and sell at small profits.
New patterns have been made this year and new styles" intro
duced through Mr. Robert C. Ogdcn (formerly partner of the
famous firm of Devlin & Co., New York), who is now associated
with Oak Hall, and will give his whole energies nnd valuable
experience to improving tho manufacture of our Hoys' and Men's
Clothing. Wo do not buy Clothing like the dealers, but make
k expressly for our own sales. The Spring stock is splendid,
nnd no other make of goods, so far, have as much merit, or are
sold as cheaply.
Impressions have been cn-oneously given to the effect that
Mr. John Wanamakcr, who founded Oak Hall, is not interested in
the old store, and that it docs not have his attention ; on the
contrary, his ownership of it remains unchanged, nnd lie lias lost
none of his love for it. Pvcry day finds him supervising nil its
departments. Mr. William 11. Wanamakcr spends his entire time
on the Oak Hall business.
