Stolen Goods Recovered
As wo stated last weok, tho store of
Johnston & Wattson, of this place,
was entered on Monday night, and a
quantity 'of goods were Stolen. On
Tuesday morning a man was seen go
ing up the railroad with a large bun
dle on his back, which fact was com
municated to Messrs. S. & W., when a
party immediately started in pursuit
of him. After a search of several
hours the goods were found concealed
in the rocks abovo town, along the
railroad, but the thief was not to be
found. Ho took supper on Tuesday
at the Warm Springs hotel, but though
diligent search was made for him he
could not be discovered. The amount
of goods stolen was about $BOO, and
had we not seen them on the counter
we could not have believed that one
man could .'carry them. • Amongst
them were heavy Irish linen, silks,
lace, buttons, trimming, and a quanti
ty of other articles that the thief
would no doubt have peddled. It
took two men to carry the goods back
to the store.
It is scarcely necessary at this day
to say anything in praise of Webster's
Unabridged Quarto Dictionary, 1840
pages and 3000 engravings. Having
come into possession of a copy of the
latest edition, we cannot refrain from
expressing our admiration at the mar
velous industry and learning which such
a book must have called into demand.

to belong to the appointments of every

.John G. White,.one of the pion

the second floor of a house on Front
street. It appears that on Saturday
he fell down the stairs leading to his

at the• time to be slight—which result
ed in hemorrhage. Living alone, he
was not discovered until Monday mor
ning. When found, his body was ly
ing upon the floor, partially under the
bed, which was - saturated with blood.

of accidontal death from a fall, produ

WHERE THEY Go.—The .other day,
says an exchange, a lady called at the
house of a friend, and seeing a couple
of not largo sized pin cushions lying
upon the table, which, upon inquiry,
she found had been in use for five
years, suggested to the lady of the
house that it would be a good idea to
rip them open and get the needles.—
At this the lady laughed, and replied
that she thought it would hardly pay;
but upon the other insisting that she
would find as many as 300, the expo•
riment was finally tried, when, to the
astonishment of all, 1,500 needles were
counted out I We don't charge the

We learn that on Tuesday last Mr.
Peter IC. Harnish, while traveling on
horseback over Warrior ridge, was
waylaid at the Pulpit Rocks, and rob
bed of all the money he had in his
possession, which was $2O. The high
waymen are said to be two negroes,
and did their work in regular high
wayman's style—pointing a pistol and
telling their victim to "stand and de
liver." We have this merely as a ru
mor, but if there is any such charac
ters there, it would be very easy to
scour the woods and bag the villains.

BROAD TOP, 'April 30, 1869
Dear Globe:—Business on Broad Top is
brisk, the country trade being •quite heavy.
One store sold one thimitind"dollais - Weitli of
goods in three days.
Mining is flourishing. There is any amount
of work for miners and laborers, but they are
not at hand. There is talk of another strike
among the miners of some of the collieries
for ten cents advance on the ton. There is
also talk of a decrease in the price of mining
in more of the collieries, and ore this com
munication reaches you Some of these strikes
may have taken place.
The Union church of Dudley is in a flour
ishing condition, and is acquiring daily ac.
cessions in membership, and is as happy a
little church, taking into consideration the
number of its members, as can be found.
The pastoral residence of the Roman Cath
olic priest of this place is undergoing a thor
ough repair. It is really a beautiful resi
dence, surrounded by many very pretty shade
trees, a nice young fruit orchard and a small
but pleasing flower garden. The corgrega
lion attached to this Church is in a most lion
rishingcondition and is moving along smooth
ly in peace and harmony, daily acquiring
new members to its fold and taking proper
care of those already under its charge. .
In Broad Top City there aro two denomi
nations, the M. E. church and • the Baptist
church,:and . although the' whole 'number of
their united membership is not very large,
still it appears they cannot get along m har
mony. * * * •*- =I hope they
will not get' offended at what I say, M. it is
already going into the ears of too Many, and
this may cause them to correct'what I would
call a scandal.
