Death of Col. George Dare 4
Amongst the many patriots from
this county who fell In the late despe
rate and siingidnary struggle in Vir
ginia, ire record with regret the, death
of Lieut. Col. Dare, of the sth Penna.
teserves. He entered the service
three years ago as Captain of a com
pany, enlisted principally at Hunting
don Furnace, this county, and by show
ing his ability as a commander of a
few, ho was promoted to the command
Over many; in every position anti ev
ery occasion bei ng the man most capa
ble of ruling. His loss as an officer is
deeply felt in his regiment, where his
services have often been required and
willingly and advantageously employ
ed; at home, many warm friends, who
have watched with pleasure his prom
inent military career; mourn the de
cease of a beloved citizen, who would
in ono short mouth have returned to
their number, to cheer the weary and
gladden the oppressed with his enli
vening conversation, and advise with
free goad-will all who would seek his
advice; but who is to return enwrap
in the shroud of honor, having
fallen under its folds and in its defence.
His friends and admirers have the con•
soling thought in the midst of their
bereavement that he fell while' nobly
leading his command on- to victory,
in defence of a holy and patriotic
Death of Col. J. Blanchard
With the news of Sunday morning
last came the saddening intelligence
of the death of Lieut. C01..1. Blanch
ard Miles, of the 49th Regt., Penna.
Vet. Vol., formerly a resident of this
place, and son of John G. Miles, Esq.
This noble officer, who has been
thus suddenly stricken down in Lis
rapidly advancingThilitary career, left
this place three years ago as the Cap
tain of a company raised, principally
by himself, in this county. His com
pany was taken to Harrisburg where
it was mustered into the 49th Regt.,
P. V., and with that Regiment Col.
Miles was closely attached until his
death. By his affability and prompt.
ness he endeared himself to his fellow
and superior officers, and by his close
atteniion to the wants of his men, and
by his officer like ability to control
and direct, he won their respect and
abet:lance. These characteristics were
soon observed and rewarded, for we
see that step by step he advanced in
the path of military distinction, and
at his death was the second in com
mand of his Regiment; and we confi
dently say that be would have won
more laurels, and ascended still higher
the rounds of military fame and die
tinction, had he not been Called by
Him who considered his work finished
and his C0111'.30 run.
We sympathize with the wife; (who
was but lately wedded,) parents and
kindred of the deceased, and join with
the community in mourning the loss
of a patriot and officer so distinguish
ed, and a citizen so respected and•ad
mired: Ms friends have the consola
tion that he fought nobly and well for
the cause of tim Union, and in perish
ing in his effort to preserve the Union
he has stamped the memory of his ser
vices more deeply on the hearts of his
"Tis sweet to die for one's country."
P. S.—A dispatch was received on
Monday evening from the Adjutant of
the Regiment, stating that Col. Miles'
body fell into the hands of the rebels
and could not be recovered.
To convince an individual of the
electric and exciting power of war
news he has only to drop into this lo-
entity and watch the features of our
loyal inhabitants at the tirrival of ev
ery passenger train west. Every loy
al man is anxious to bear the latest,
and be electrified and glorified with
..the additional news of the success of
our forces marching on to Richmond.
The late war news have a two-fold ef
fect. While one class of our popula
tion rejoice, and exult in the speedy
downfall of rebellion, another certain
class look gram, hang their heads, be
come_sick and feverish, and pray that
their "brethren of the South" will fi❑d
eventually some - way to retaliate,
They must, of course, have some fear
ful forebodings, and think, no doubt,
that, with the defeat, rout and anni
hilation of Lee's forces, whom they
would welcome in our midst, their po.
litical cause must also perish. What
a fallacious, rotten and destructive or
ganization that must be which depends
upon the open enemies of our govern
ment for support.
:fore Rata and Thunder
Notwithstanding the thunder of ar
tillery that Leo hears, and the rain of
shot and shell that his troops feel in
Virginia, we of this section are also in
great inconvenience from the frequent
and sufficient supplies of "earth's resto
rative" from the clouds above. We
would, however, think the change,
from hater to worse, if we were- in
Lee's unenviable position. If rains can
be considered an evidence of fighting,
as some say, then we believe, from the
abundant falls of rain in this locality,
that there must have been heavy fight
ing somewhere, and that somewhere
was in Virginia. On Monday all the.
streams in this neighborhood were run
A brakeman, named Mr. Myers,
while standing on tho top of a car, at
tached to the Express Freight east of
Sunday morning, the Bth inst., which
was in rapid motion, was struck in
the head by ono of tho joists ofan iron
bridge belOw Mill Creek, and immedi
ately killed. his remains which were
properly interred by the Penna. Rail
road Co., were taken to Mount Union.
We learn he had been an employee
on the Road eight years, and never
previous to this fatal occurrence re
ceived a bruise.
.BC' Agent Africa has opened his
ice cream saloon for the season. It is
located on Railroad street, nearly op
posite the Jackson House. Mr. A.
has fitted up his saloon in fine style,
and it is one of the most attractive
places now open for the sale of ice
cream and refreshments in the town.
Those wanting good ice cream should
give him a call.
Killed by Lightning
Capt. James - Wright, of Petersburg,
this county, was killed by lightning
at Norristown, -Montgomery county,
on Monday afternoon, the 9th inst.—
He was running a canal boat for Cress
& Son, and the boat was in mo
tion when he was struck.
Mr. Terry, a well known and re
spected citizen of this place, and an
active prominent employee of the
Broad Top Railroad, met with a seri
ous accident on Saturday last, which
almost resulted in his death. He was
at tho time, employed in repairing the
Road at a point, one mile and a half
above McConnellstown. While stand
ing upon a truck watching and super
intending the maneuvering of a polo
about twelve feet in length and of the
diameter of a telegraph polo, used as
a lever in raising a car, the pole was,
at his direction, let go by the men, and
it suddenly flew back and struck Mr.
Terry on the head above the right ear,
knocking him down insensible, and
apparently dead. Not having any
convenient place to convey him he
was taken care of by the workmen in
the best manner possible, until evening,
when he was brought to his home, and
Dr, linden immediately sent for. It
is not yet certain that he will recover.
The communication from a
"Union man" came to hand too late
for this week's issue.
In Janesville, Clearfield county, on
the 10th inst., JESSE GORSUbII, of Onei

lie was a husband and a father ; and
by this sudden and mysterious dispen
sation of Divine Providence, a tender
and affectionate wife has been left a
widow, and throe children have been
deprived of a father's care and protec
tion. That family he had left, but a
short time before in order to attend
to some business, and was brought
home a corpse, his death occurring
suddenly during his absence from
home. Such are the insorutablo de
crees of Him whose ways arc past

A boy, while attempting to jump on
a train running through Mapleton,
missed his hold and was thrown be
tween the ears, and bad both arms
taken off by the wheels. Ire died soon
after. This is a caution for the boys
of this place who attempt to jump on
every passing train. We aro surpris
ed at the scarcity of accidents to these
boys, but the time may come when
they will. have cause to regret their
conduct. We cannot understand why
parents allow their children to place
themselves in so much danger, unless
it is that they wish their boys to learn
through serious experience the dan
gerous folly of jumping on and off ra
pidly moving cars,
Unheeded the Caution
On Saturday " last, while a train of
soldiers was passing through town, a
boy, named Nevin Reid, in attempting
to jump off the car, which was running
rapidly, was thrown to the side, and
had his right arm and side injured con
siderably. We trust the railroad boys
will now heed, for they must remem

Cotton Goods has compelled public attention to be more
especially directed to the culture of Flax. It can be mode
by some attention, one of the most valuable products a
farmer can produce; an acre readily producing 50 to 00
Dollars worth of fibre and seed. Great care should be
taken by growers to hero their Flax spread Tory thin
when rolling; when watered sufficiently on one side, it
should bo turned, and subject to exposure until all the
stalk! get a grey color, and the lint readily imateri
from the wood by a gentle rub.
It should on a very dry day be tied in bundles and Is
then reedy for the mill. As egeneral thing too much
seed is sown on an acre. Unless the ground is very rich
one Bushel per acre is sufficient. If the ground is very
strong one and one fourth bushel is ample.
