The earnest and zealous labors of a

Our. ftag has been maintained—our

Tun MURDER. TRIAL.—The trial of
Miss Mary Harris for the murder of
Mr. A. T. Burroughs, a Government
clerk - , has ended after a tedious exam
ination of witnesses lasting ten days,
.and a deliberation of the jury of eight
minutes. The shortness of the consul
tation of the jury, when compared with
the days of the trial is occasioning
some surprise and comment. The ver
dict, itself, meats with the displeasure
'of a few, for the reason that disap.
pointed love may excuse murder, and
that as Miss Harris was excused, it
may give room to others similarly
disappointed to excuse themselves with
the same plea, should they apply the
same criminal mode of redress.

ger weekly subscriptions have been
made, this would tio regarded as little
loss than monstrous, For the past
month there has been a steady increase
in the weekly aggregates, the result of
exertions so quietly made as to enlist
no extraordinary attention. Tho sub
scription is the spontaneous action of
the people.. •
skia-It- is represented that in Geor
gia the freedmen generally, having
recovered - from their jubilation over
the aequieition of their, liberty, have
settled down to work on the planta

ore not synonymous.
Rewarding the Soldier.
E DIT6 RS Gr one:
e ti me has come
when the deeds of the returned
soldier should be recounted, or, rath
er, appreciated; when we, as a people,
should praise him for the same, and
when we should consider his claims
upon our honor and oft-repeated de%
claration to remember and reward
him. Many there aro in our county
who have returned to their homes,
and gone to their accustomed pursuits
with wonted glee and industry. 01
this number there aro many who are
capable of filling with honor any posi
tion the people may choose - to confer
upon them. A few of those returned,
as your columns show, aro proposed
as candidates for offices to be filled by
the Union Co. Convention in August
nost. Now, without saying anything
for them individually, wo are of the
belief that a soldier is tho most worthy
man to fill the offices of the people..-.
He has puoven that ho is ono of the
people by showing his willingness to
fight for the Union and Government,
composed of and constituted by tho
people, and we would be treating him
meanly should we fitil to reward him
with anything more than dollars and
cents for his services and gallantry.—
We must all know that without the
soldier to fight our four years strife
with the plotters of the Nation's ruin
we would not have lived as a Nation
to-day, enjoying uninterruptedly the
blessings of our free and benign Gov
ernment. Without his arm we would
not have been saved. And, now, it is
as little as we can do to openly reward
him for protecting us and our institu
Certainly, there are distinctions to

posal, just as there should have been
amongst civilians. All soldiers would
not make good public officers, and we
feel confident there aro soldiers who
are frank enough to admit this fact;
but if we were to choose between an
honest but ignorant soldier and a cor
rupt office-seeker, we would most as
suredly solect the former, no matter
how intelligent the latter might be;
because wo would feel safe that the
former would do 'no harm and a little
good, while the other would do no
good, and great harm. We know this
would be the choice of the people also.
But we are not to meet such a position.
On the - other band, wo expect to sco
on the side of the Union an intelligent
and worthy soldier, of whom there
are many, opposed to the corrupt po
All true Union men were the friends
of the soldier during the war, and will
remain so in peace. No aro glad they
have triumphed and we shall rejoice
in crowning them with the laurels of
reward. The good, hcnest, worthy

The Crop Prospect).
The Agricultural Bureau has receiv
ed reports from different parts of the
country which represent that the
crops of hay, Potatoes, and corn, will
be larger than any previous year.—
The hay crop will bo fully-one third
larger than ever known before. Oats
aro also reported to be very superior,
and a larger crop grown than for years
previous. Newspaper reports repre
sent the wheat crop as unusually largo
in all parts of the country. In Now
York, barley promises well, while the
apple crop in the western part of the
State will be unprecedented. .Tbe
harvest in ,Pennsylvania is excellent.
Corn and oats look well in Maryland,
and reports from the southern part of
Virginia show a promising yield.--
Grass is uncommonly fine. In Illinois
and lowa,. the wheat crop, though a
failure in some localities, will .be more
-than an average yield and of good
quality. It is being harvestedin good
condition. • Corn 'is backward, but
thrifty. In northern lowa the tre.
mendous rains in .tlio latter days of
Juno washed out the corn, and these
crops will be almost an entire failure.
Potatoes in lowa are ruined by the
bug. Fruit promises a fair yield--
poaches in particular, of which there
will be a great abundance. Of small
fruits there is a generous supply. In
Wisconsin there aro a few exceptions
to the promise of the best crop raised
for years. In a few instances only
oats and wheat are failures. Michi
gan, so far as heard from, presents the
same prosperous . appearance. The
first now wheat of Ohio was exhibited
on 'change at Cleveland; on the 29th
ult. The berry was plump and largo,
and the yield in the valley plentiful.--
In southern Indiana the papers speak
of the wheat yield as enormous, and
the quality as unsurpassed by the crop
of any previous year. To add to the
satisfaction of the farmers, the weath:
or has been as favorable as they could
desire, and the new crop has boon
harvested iu the .very best condi
tion. In Kentucky the wheat is quite
a-poor crop. Oats, grass and corn are
quite abundant.. The appearance of
the grape crop is said to be quite un
favorable, especially of the Catawba.
In Tennessee the wheat crop Will not
be as largo as that of corn. In Geor-•
gia corn promises well. Cotton is said
to be coming into market in small
quantities.. Louisiana, the ;New
Orleans Picayune says, accounts from
the country report that crop,prospects
aro very encouraging. Sugar, cotton,
corn and rico are looking well. With
the exception of apples, all Eastern
crops at this time promise well, and
the hay crop will bo one third larger
than that of last year. •
ai-Owing to the payment of the
troops now being mustered Out of the
service, including bounties and the
other necessary obligations of the Go
vernment, the daily demands upon the
Treasury are )our to five millions of

letters to her have been read in court

. A Word for a Soldier,
Ma. EDTTOtt :—I was much pleased
to see the name of Capt. John Living
ston announced as a candidate for As
sembly, and you will pardon an old
acquaintance for saying a word in fa
vor of his claims. Captain Livingston
though a young man, dependent on his
own exertions, has obtained for him
self a good education, and established
an excellent character, both as a sol.
dier and citizen. When the war broke
out Captain Livingston, though a citi
zen of this county, was engaged in
teaching a Normal School at Scholia
burg, Bedford. county, and in October
1861, with the assistance of two or
Orel) other yonng men raised a com
pany, of which he was first commis
sioned Ist Lieutenant, and afterwards
Captain. The company was attached
to the 55th .Regt. P. V., and ordered
to South Carolina, whore it .remained
upwards of two years, taking part in
all tho operations about Port Voyal
and Charleston. In the Spring of '6l,
the regiment was attached to the army
of tho James, and fought at Cold Har
bor, and in lia severe battles south
of the James river, and before Peters
burg. In ono of these battles Captain
Livingston was severely wounded in
the thigh, and disabled for several
months. When be returned, to duty
he was found too much disabled for
field duty and resigned his commission
about January last.
Those who knew him in the army
speak in the highest terms of his char
acter as a Soldier and a gentleman.
Those who know ldm as a civilian,
and have known him from his youth,
believe that he would be an ornament
to the position which lie seeks, and ex
press the hope that he will not bejos•
tied aside by mere politicians, as often
' happens in nominating conventions.

Supposed Murderers Arrested.
It will be reineinhered . that about
six weeks al4o a brutal murder was
committed inEbensburg,Cambi is coun
ty. The victims wore popularity sup
posed to possess a largo amount of mon
ey, but whether the murderers found
any plunder did notappear. The crime
caused considerable excitement at the
time. At first no traces of the perpet
rators could be discovered, but at last
suspicion was directed toward two men
who had been seen lounging near the
place about the time of the warder. A
Bufriciont clue was thus obtained, and
the matter having been placed in the
hands of officer - .Hague, of the inde
pendent Police, assisted by officers
Richardson, McKelvey and Bowden,
every trace was followed up, and late
last evening their patient search was
rewarded by the arrest of those whom
they bad been seeking. The two, men
were arrested in Garret's fields, Alio.
gheny,and wore much surprised to find
themselves: in the custody of the offi
ears. They give their names as John
Hauser, and Daniel Bowser, and are
old jail-birds, haVing but recently been
released from the Penitentiary, where
they had been sentenced for robbery.
It was while immured in this institu
tion that. they learned that the ladies
referred to had money, and knowing
that their release must Soon take place,
they arranged the details of the mur
der. They wont. up there ostensibly
in the cupping and leeching business,
and used this us a cloak to cover their
vile designs.' They now have a prospect
01 a speedy termination of their career
of crime. The Sheriff of Cambria

and the prisoners, securely guarded,
will be taken there for trial.—Pitts

The Murder Trial.
Acquittal of Miss Harris
WASIIINGTON, July 19.—The trial of
Mary Harris for the killing of A. T.
Burroughs, terminated this afternoon,
having occupied twelve days. The
room was densely crowded with spec..
tators, including many women, long
before the court was formally opened.
Hon. D. IV: Voorhees made the clo
sing speech in behalf of the accused,
contending•that, from•all the affecting
circumstances and wrongs inflicted
upon her by the deceased, - the hom
icide was an act of insane impulse. •
District Attorney Carrington deliv
ered the concluding argument for the
prosecution. He said appeals had been
made to the sympathies of the jury—
nothing else, and he would prove it.
"Great God," ho exclaimed, "what an
array of counsel—Joseph If. Bradley,
the great and eminent lawyer !"
Before he had finished the sentence,
.I.arshal Gooding interrupted the
speaker, telling the audience they
must cease laughing or he would ar
rest them. •
Mr. Carrington said : "Let them
laugh, Judge; they have the right to
laugh or cry."
Marshal Goodin°. responded : "Mr.
Carrington, I will regulate that mat
Mr. Carrington, resuming, said;
"Very well, I submit;" and continuin g
his remarks, said ; "If the jury acquit
this woman on the ground of insanity,
they put upon the records of the court
a fact that would make them look ri
diculous. The scene is laid in Chicago.
We find Mary Harris meets Mary Dev
lin, who keeps a millinery' establish- .
ment. What kind of an establishment
was that ?"
Judge Hughes here called the atten
tion of the court to the misrepresenta
tion of the evidence by the District
Judge Wylie informed the District
Attorney that lie should not retaliate
upon Miss Devlin as to the character
of the house, because tho counsel for
the defence had attacked Dr. Bur
roughs. Judge Wylie said there Was
nothing in the evidence against the
character of the house of Miss Devlin,
and ho- would not permit him to make
an attack upon the house, though he
might comment as much as ho pleased
on the testimony of these ladies; but
ho should not assail her house, against
which there was no evidence.
Mr. Carrington said, "No man shall
say that .1 was over seen to cower. I
discharge my duty in the fear of God,
and without fear of man."
Judge Wylie. You shall not go on
in that manner: I will have no discus
sion between y9u and myself to be de
termined by tho jury. •
Judge Hughes said ho did not desire
to interrupt the District Attorney, and
he therefore hoped he would confine
himself to the evidence, and within
bounds. •
Judge Wylie said it was unpleasant
fur him to interrupt the counsel, but,
in the closing argument, the counsel
Must limit themselves to the recogni.
zed bounds.
Mr. Carrington resumed his plea,
and again denounced Rise Devlin.
Mr. Bradley said such conduct was
unbecoming a gentleman, and no genN
Unman would use such language. lie
could not sit quietly and suffer this
unprotected lady to be insulted by Mr.
Carrington or anybody else. •
Kr. Carrington said he would do his
Mr. Bradley rejoined, " - No gentle.
man would use such language."
Mr. Carrington said he would return
the insult—the gentleman having used
such language against Dr. Burroughs.
Mr. Bradly. said that Miss Devlin
was brought hero by him, and he
would protect her. An attack upon
her was an attack upon him, and ho
would resent it.
The Court ordered Marshal Gooding
to stop this quarreling between the
lawyers, and informed Mr. Carrington
that ho was going beyond bounds, in
using such language towards the lady
against whom there was nothing in
the evidence.
After i\L. Carrington had concluded
his plea', Judge Wylie said to the jury
that the law had been laid down by
the court; feeling satisfied that they
understood it, be now submitted the
case without further charge, lie ho
ped they bad made up their minds,
and would soon render their verdict.
The jury retired, and in about ten
minutes returned, with a verdict of
"Net guilty." .
The announcement was received
with laud applause, and some of the
women cried with - joy. Handkerchiefs
were waved and hats thrown. up.
largo number of the spectators rushed
towards Miss Harris to congratulate
her on the acquittal, but she had faint
ed, and was carried out of the court
room in the arms of Mr. Bradley, her
senior counsel.
A PATRIOTIC FA - am - Y.—We were this
morning favored with a visit from a
bravo soldier, named John Fon Rodd,
of Co. A, Thirteenth Pennsylvania
Cavalry, who is hero awaiting the
arrival of his regiment, to be disellarg- -
ed. Mr. Fon Rodd, is a German, and
a son of .dieery William Fon Rodd,:
Esq., of Butztown, Pa. The father is
eighty.nir,o years of ago, and has lost
nine sons in the war for the Union.
Eight of these wore killed in battle,
and tho other died of starvation, in
the rebel pens at Salisbury. .While a
prisoner, the, son last referred to natt
ily ate , his right hand, so great was
his hunger. John from whom we have
obtained our information, is the tenth
and youngest of the brothers, and ho
boars the scars of eight wounds receiv
ed in battle. Ho, too, was for a time
a prisoner at Salisbury, and was only
released at the Close of tho war. His
recital of the treatment of the starving
prisoners fully confirms all tho ac
counts that have heretofore been pub
lished of the southern barbarism under
which our moia suffered. Upon inquiry
we learn from other sources, that
Henry William Fon Rodd, the father
of the ten heroes, has for many years
been ono of the most highly respected
citizens of J3utztown. Is there an;.
other man in the world who has sacri
ficed more sons upon the alter of our
country than, this aged German?—
