POETIC.—The gentlemen attending the
" Huntingdon College" alias Jail, are be
coming quite poetic. On Saturday we were
handed an original copy of their effusions,
which, as regards orthography, takes down
anything we have seen lately. We make a
few estracts verbatim et literatum. A well
well known " blood " gets off the following:
the Huntingdon bloods thinks thay cut a dash,
but us .jail birds have got tbe cash, &c.
One writes an affectionate appeal to a legal
gentleman, asking his assistance in getting
him out of jail, telling him he has a large
family to keep, that his time will be up on
the 10th inst., that he can't spare the money
to pay his costs, and that he would like to
Another poor fellow attempted to escare,
but failed, and gives vent to his feelings in
O when i wos in Jail i couldent
Get out a tol, i went into the
Yard and i tryed to climb the wall
I went unto the gate and i gumped into
the !toll, and they hit me ofver the head,
land i conidnot get out atoll.
O they put me up stairs and they give
me no ale, and it' you not go to bed,
they woul make you ride a rail.
Now I am in Jail and it try to get out
If i can, and then i try to live a better
Still another, who was lodged in jail for
getting drunk, &c., gets off the following :
got drunk the other night
When all was quiet and still,
I Unit i saw the devel a coming
Down the hill.
The last verse of this effusion winds up in
this way :
Now my song is ended and i wont
Sing no more, and every time i think of
it, it makes my hart grow soar.
ARRESTED---Our readers will remember
that we noticed some four or five weeks ago,
that the store of A. 11. Bauman & Co., of Ma
pleton, this county, was robbed to the amount,
in money and goods, of about $250 by a young
man named John L. Ripple, who was in their
employ. After committing the robbery Rip
ple made his way to Kansas, and after arri
ving there, he wrote to some one living in
Mapleton. His hand-writing was recognized,
inquiry was made, and Mr. Bauman started
for Kansas, in-search of him, but the day he
arrived there, Ripple started for St. Louis,
Missouri, unawares, however, of his pursuit.
Mr: 8., learned this fact immediately on his
arrival in Kansas, and started back to St. Louis,
where he arrested Ripple, brought him back
to this place on Saturday last and lodged him
in jail, where he awaits his trial at Au
gust term of court.
Tun COUNTY JAIL—We beg leave to call
the attention of the proper authorities, to the
deplorable state in which our Jail is in.—
Within the last six or eight weeks, as many
as eight prisoners have escaped from the di
lapidated old fabrication. It is scarcely se
cure enough for a pig sty, to say nothing of
the safe keeping of violators of the law, whose
inventive genius is ever at work, to effect an
escape, in order to flee from the meshes of
the law. We hope, for the credit of our coun
ty, that the proper authorities will attend to
this matter at once, before any more, who set
the law at defiance, make their escape.—
Prisoners might almost as well be set down
in the street and let run at large as to be put
in our Jail for safe keeping. •
KILLED.—On Saturday morning last, while
two men named David Moore and John Duf
fey, were drifting in the Dry Hollow Ore
Bank, near Warriorsmark, the bank fell in,
crushing them in a horrible manner and kill
ing both instantly. They endeavored to
make their escape when they saw the danger,
but were too late, as the bank was already
falling, Both men were sober and industri
ous, and our informant tells us that Duffey
had accumulated considerable money from his
earnings, he having been employed for about
fifteen years at that place.

assorted in boxes, just received and for sale

LEG BROKE:V.—Capt. Hiram Johnston, of
this place, met with a very serious accident
on Friday last, by which he had one of his legs
fractured just above the ankle. He was pas
sing along Hill street, driving a young horse in
a sulky, and by some means, lost one rein from
his hands, and while he was endeavoring to
regain it, the horse leisurely walked on to
the pavement between Long's new building
and Strous' old stand, running against a post
and upsetting the sulky, throwing Mr. John
ston out and injuring him as above stated.—
Medical aid was immediately summoned,
the fracture dressed, and we learn be is im
proving as rapidly as can be expected, under
FALSE PRETENCE.-A fellow by the name
of Silknitter, and a native of this county, was
brought to this place last week, and entered
bail for his recognizance at the Indiana Coun
ty Court, for doing a large business on a
small scale. It appears he went to Indiana
county and bought large quantities of hoop
poles under false pretences, and skipped them
off to the eastern market, where he sold
them and pocketed the cash, leaving his cred
itors to get their pay from whom they could.
It appears also, that he never purchased twice
from one man, or ever showed his face in that
part of the county afterwards.
Pic NIC PARTIES.—On Friday last, a party
of our young folks visited Terras Mountain,
to enjoy the sport of climbing the rugged
bill side, and to admire the beautiful scenery
which presents itself on every hand, from
the lofty peaks of that majestic and noble old
On Saturday, we observed a party of ju
veniles, with baskets in hand, repairing to
the woods, to enjoy a feast of fat things, in
the shape of pound cakes, etc., etc., as well
as to inhale the pure air of a lone forest.
MIFFLIN COUNTY BANK.—The Governor
has appointed John Scott and John G. Miles,

of Juniata county, Commissioners to appraise

BEAUTIFUL, BUT TRUE.
A few days since, Mr. Jas. U. Beadle, of Huntsville, Al
abama, called on us and gave us permission to publish for
the benefit of suffering humanity, the astonishing cure
which had been effected in the case of his wife by the use
of Dr. Dance's Vegetable Epileptic Pills. He informed us,
that at the time his wife commenced using the medicine,
her system was so entirely prostrated, by the number of
spasms she had undergone, as to reduce her weight to 100
lbs. Since she lies been taking the pills, she has entirely
got over the spasms and has gained in weight and bodily
health. She now weighs at least 200 lbs., and declares she
is in better enjoyment of health than ever before in her
life. Mr. Beadle also related the case of Mr. Harrison
Lightfoot of the same town, who has been entirely cured
of the worst form of Epilepsy by these same pills. Mr.
Lightfoot's case was so bad that ho never passed a week
without having an attack, often falling down in the street.
He has not had an attack for more than a year. Mr. Bea
dle thinks that if the pills ever fail in curing a case, it is
for the want of a proper perseverance on the part of the
person in taking them, as he feels assured from observa
tion in the case of his wife, that if they aro taken for a
sufficient length of time, they will cure any case. Sent to

"Why should we mourn? The loved one sleeps
In sweet eternal rest;
Where flowers of beauty silent weep
Above his lowly breast;
W,iere storms no more shall rage around,
Or sin or sorrow come;
Where peace, sweet peace, alone is found,
The grave, his earthly home.
Well mourn no more, the loved one sleeps,
From sin and sorrow free;
Bright angels guard his tomb, why weep?
For an angel pure is he.
And when a few more suns shall rise,
A few more days pass o'er,
Well meet him as we tread the skies,
And parted be no more." Sr. E. G
