COURT PRocEEDINCi.—The following
cases on the civil
,list were disposed of &mini
last week :
Mrs. P. S. Breckenridge vs. D. C. Saulsbury,
et al. Action brought to recover under three
distinct causes of action for damages for
breach of covenant, and for the rentof certain
coal mines and other property, in Allegheny
county. Verdict for plaintiff for $4900. Miles
& Dorris for plaintiff, Brown & Bailey fur de
Lockhart & Stoekhart vs. James Bricker.
Action of assumpsit, brought by a firm of
practicing attorneys in Tennessee for alleged
professional services, in the collection of a
claim held by defendant against a man in that
State, formerly a resident of Bedford county,
who had left for parts unknown leaving the
defendant minus some $2500. The claim it
seems was placed in the bands of a Philadel
phia firm to collect, who sent it to the Tennes
see firm, but there was a failure to collect the
money. This claim of $lOO was made for
professional services rendered in the prosecu
tion of the claim by the plaintiffs in addition
to what had already been paid for fees and
expenses to the firm in Philadelphia. The
claim was resisted on the ground that the case
had been mismanaged to such an extent that
nothing had been realized out of it, and that
the plaintiffs were not his attorneys or agents
having rendered no services for him. Verdict
for defendant. Dorris and Brown for plain
tiffs, Speer for defendant.
State Bank, Harrisburg vs. Matthew Stewart.
Action of debt brought to recover the amount
of a promissorynote fer $3OO, alleged to have
been given by defendant to J. J. Wilhelm &
Co., manufacturers of patent hay forks, in
Lebanon county, and by them transferred to
the plaintiffs. The defense set up to the
note was that the signature was not that of
the defendant buts forgery and that the note
was procured by fraud practised upon him
by some young man who visited his place
list summer and represented themselves
as agents for the aforesaid firm, and
who by some sharp dodge succeeded in ob
taining his signature to a blank negotiable
note under the impression that be was signing
an agreement to engage in the sale of forks
for them within certain territory in this coun
ty. The case under the law as laid down by
the court, and in accordance with the most
recent decisions of the Supreme Court, turn
ed entirely upon the question of whether the
signature was really a forgery, or whether it
was not really the signature of the defendant,
obtained by some kind of manipulation while
he supposed that he was signing the agree
ment, as in the latter case he would have been
held for the amount, but in the former releas
ed from payment.
The jury taking the former view of the case,
underthe instructions of the Court, returned
a verdict for the defendant, who no doubt went
home not only a wiser man, but with a de
termination to keep a sharp eye in the fu
ture on all patent right men and traveling
humbugs; and we might be safe in ventur
ing to all, such our advice, that hereafter
it will be consistent with their personal safety
to give to his residence as cinch latitude as
possible when traveling in that community. 1
Massey for plaintiffs, Browtt & Bailey for
Michael Boring vs. Hobert S. Racket. This
was an action of debt, to recover the penalty
of $25 prescribed by the Act of Assembly, of
March 211th, 1845, to prevent the obstruction
of public crossings of streets and roads, over
The facts elicited on the trial of the case
were substantially as follows: Michael Bor
ing, the plaintiff; a farmer residing in Union
township, started from his home on the 23d
of September last about 4 o'clock in the morn
ing for this place with a wagon loaded with
fruit and other market produce. On arriving
at the place where the public road crosses
the Penna. Railroad, at the mouth of Mont
gomery's Hollow, near Mill Creek he found
the road blocked up by a train of freight
cars which were standing on the track, and
he was compelled to wait there about an hour
before they were removed so as to permit him
Robert S. Racket the defendant was the
conductor of the aforesaid freight train, and
the action was brought against him, the
plaintiff alleging that lie had been guilty of
the offense of obstructing the crossing at
this point, so as to interfere with his passing
over the public road, and also that it was pos
sible for him by separating a portion of .his
train, to have afforded sufficient room for the
plaintiffs team to cross with safety. The de
fence was that the stopping and detention of
the train at that place was the result of an
unavoidable accident; that it was impossible
to take the time necessary for the uncoupling
of the cars so as to allow the teams to pass,
without running the risk of a collision with
the passenger train then due; and that every
thing was done which could be done in such
an emergency consistent with safety. Con
cerning the general facts in the case relative
to the obstruction of the crossing and deten
tion there was very little conflict or discrep
ancy iu the statement of the witnesses on
both sides. The additional evidence adduced
on the part of the defendant was that when
nearthat place, going,.east, the morning being
very foggy, they were signaled to stop by the
train immediately is front of them and in
formed that one of the trains still further on
had been disabled, by the breaking of a link,
between Mill Creek and Coal Siding, just be
low the crossing, and part of the train left
standing on the track. In order to clear the
track for the passenger trains, then almost
due, it became necessary for the freight trains
to back on to the coal siding and lay over till
the passage of the passenger trains, which was
done as quickly as possible, and the defen
dant having charge of the rear train discover
ed that there was not room on the Coal hiding
sufficient for his entire train, but being coin
pelled to get off the track in some way, he left
a portion of it there, and in doing so blocked
up this crossing, while with the engine and
the balance of the train he proceeded to the
short siding at Mill Creek, a short distance
further east and backed on to it, where he
remained till after the passenger trains had
gone by, when lie returned and drew out his
train as quick as possible and went on. Had the
passenger trains been on time there was but
twenty minutes for the accomplishment of all
this, and it was contended not only that he
had done everything that he could do under
the circumstances, but that there was not
time sufficient to uncouple the cars left on the
crossing and make an opening sufficient for a
team to cross.
This is about the amount of the evidence,
and the case became thus narrowed down to
the simple question of whether or not the de
fendant was guilty of an obstruction of that
public crossing, on that day, upon a true con
struction of the act of 18:35, his Honor, Judge
Taylor instructing the jury that although in
one sense every crossing is obstructed for a
time while every train is passing, no reasona
ble construction of the act would render this
an unlawful blocking or obstruction. In like
manner a train might by accident or from
some unavoidable cause, be left on a public
highway without any violation of the law, un
less it should be allowed to remain there long
er than it could reasonably be removed ; and
that to constitute a blocking or obstruction of
a crossing, under the provisions of the statute
it must appear to be an unreasonable and un
necessary one, such as might be considered
voluntary or reckless.
The case was conducted by Messrs. Lytle
for the plaintiff and Messrs. Miles & Dorris for
the defense, and was very ably argued on both
sides. The jury after remaining out about

NASUSEOUS SMELLS.—We find in an
exchange the following sensible article on the
subjpr i t of,"aanseons suiting," and.as it:applie9
with equal force in all places, we publish it
for the benefit of all concerned:
"Died at her residence, of a nauseous smell,
Margret Smith, in the 40th year of her age."
If, in the mortuary column of this and every
other paper, the eitpression, "died of tYphoid
fever" was stricken out, and in its stead was
printed "died of nauseous smell," the fre
quency with which we should find these words
occurring would' not a little surprise and
Is it, indeed, true that nauseous smells ac
tually kill' That they are very disagreeable
we all know, but that they are deadly not
every one is fully aware. We are accustomed
to regard our olfactories as sources from
which pleasures may _be derived, rather
than as monitors to warn us against
unwholesome and destructive odors. Did
we trust them in this latter capacity and
heed their monitions, delicate and almost im
perceptible as they frequently are, much sick
ness and many deaths would every year lie
It is a fact very well understood in the
medical profession that all excrementitious
matters of the human body received into the
body again through the lungs, the pores, or the
mouth, are direct and deadly poison: They will
kill as certainly as arsenic or prussic acid, or
a pellet of cold lead, if enough of them is
taken. Prince Albert died of a minute crevice
in the moldering masonry of an old London
sewer thai run under a closet adjoining his
summer sitting room. The odor was imper
ceptible, but it made Queen Victoria a mourn
er all: her days. One among the distin
guished and lamented American dead of 1869
died of a water closet adjoining his office,
which was not properly drained. The papers
said "typhoid fever," and thousands mourned
his "untimely removal from a field of exten
sive usefulness here to his everlasting
reward." The clergy and pious people called
it "an inscrutable and mysterious Provi
dence;" the doctors said qimperfect-sewage."
In the country there arc fewer deaths from
this cause than in the city, for reasons quite
obvious; populations are not crowded togeth
er, and effete matters aro returned more
promptly to the soil. Yet in the most healthy
localities typhoid fever sometimes °emirs, and
may always be Laced to its only source. In
the summer of 1860. the writer of this column

berland Alouutains, than which, perhaps, the

Within a mile of our cottage an entire family
lay prostrate With typhoid fever, and two of
their number died:. What was the matter
In one large log cabin, imperfectly lighted
and illy. Ventilated, ten persons ate, slept, and
lived. There was carried on all the work of
the family ; the beds were never aired, the
linen seldom washed; and dhe slops were
thrown whereease and convenience suggested.
To a healthy pair of lungs the atmosphere
within and around the house was simply in
tolerable. But they had become accustomed
to the odor, though it utterly refused to mr.ke
peace with them. As the warmth of the sun
increases more and more vigilance should be
used by the housekeeper to keep everything
in and around her premises perfectly sweet
and wholesome. Dry earth wilt completely

Where this cannot be applied, lime, dilute
sulphuric acid, and copperas water form very
good substitutes. Particular attention should
be paid to the drainage of the sink, especially
if that and the well are contiguous. Sleeping
rooms should be thoroughly aired and sunned
every day, and the bedding.hung upon a line
or fence at least once every week during hot
weather. If these simple rules are religiously
observed, whatever other disease may affect
the family, typho'd fever will not be among

TIIE Cia.crs.—The Circus and Menag

exhibited in this place on Friday last, was a
very creditable affair, and fully sustained the
reputation of the company. The equestrian
ism, and feats of bodily strength performed
were equal perhaps, if not superior, to any
that have ever been witnessed here.
The cavalcade and procession, with its
richly caparisoned horses, band wagon, &c.,
presented a very imposing appearance upon
its entree into town. Passing through the
principal streets it was witnessed and duly
appreciated by the usual crowd of sight seers,
including a very fair representation of the ju-,
venile brigade, the public schools not being
in session. Our country friends, of all ages
and of both sexes, were out in very respectable
numbers to patronize the "institution' and see

SPARE TILE is a shame and
a crime for which our country was punished
severely last year, to destroy such large num
bers of harmless little birds as are shot dur
ing every month of the year. The beant ful
little sparrows which hays been-introduced at
such a great expense of time and care, are
every day brought into the New York markets
by the hundreds, and sold, at extortionate
prices as game, for human food. Robins and
quails: le uncOunted numbers po also. exposes]
at the game stands and sold.
It does seem- as if oar people are stupidly
bent on destroying the goose that lays the
golden egg. The immense number
of noxious insects that little birds will destroy
held high carnival' in bur fruit orchards last
season. There has never been a year before
the past when so many wormy and insect bit
ten apples were sent to market. • The univer
sal complaint is, in almost every section of the
country, ';Our apples are treacly worthless,
trs they are all so wormy."
But, fire away; snare the little birds, de
stroy their nests, encourage rude boys to stone
and shoot every bird wittin their reach, and,
in a few snore seasons, we shall . hetir no com
plaint about wormy fruit, as-there will be none,
because the insects and fruit pests will de
stroy every embryo blossom, or young fruit,
before it can mature. When birds are en
couraged to dwell iu an orchard,' the codling'
moth and cake worm, which destroy thous
ands of bushels of apples, are all devoured
by the birds before the depredators can reach
the leaves and the fruit. Again we say—

AI:RORE BOREALIS.-The displays of
the aurora borealis, or northern lights have
been very frequent of late. Frequently a seg
ment of a circle is formed, resting at each end
of the horizon, the higher part of it being sur
rounded with a'white light, sometimes revolv
ing itself iota one or two distinct luminous arcs..
Then begin these well known beams and
shootS of light of diverging colors, originating
in the obscure segments, which break up into
bright patches, as if the whole of them were
thrown into a sort of palpitation. When the
aurora is extensive these beams, although con-.
stoutly shifting, converge towards the zenith,
where a centre, or superb auroral crown, is
formed. ....As the phenomenon diminishes in
intensity the jets continue, but the crown
shifts and it seems to be sometimes on one
side of the sky; sometimes on the other. At
length these movements cease ; the light is
withdrawn nearer and nearer to the western
horizon ; the obscure segment, as it also di
minishes, becomes luminous and finally evry
trace disappears. .
No theory or hypothesis whirls has com
mandedgenerel acceptation has yet been sug
gested for the explanation of the aurora bore.
alis. What is known is this—the direction of
the auroral jets or rays and the position of the
crown have a connection Itlth the magnetic
meridian, and the aurora produces great mag
irtic perturbation. Therefore it seems, that
the theatre of its action is atmosphere and the
agent to which its development is - due is elec..
tricity influenced in some unascertained man
ner by terrestrial magnetism. •

The object of this communication, is to call ,
thb attention of women to the study of their
present rights. Have we not already more
rights than we make good use of, and do they
not bring with Mein more duties than we
faithfully discharge? . _
If we 'Would assist in the legislative affairs
of a free government, let ns be free ourselves ;
free from the cruel chains of form and fashion
to which, (sorry to confess it,) so many ladies
in all ranks of society are mere slaves. If
four-fifths of the time spent at the shrine of
fashion, was spent in mental culture, it were
better or our own souls as well as for the
welfare of our country. If we wish to do more
good, to be more useful, let us commence in
the right place and we have then no rights to
contend for. The training of the immortal
mind is the highest right accorded to Our own
race, and this in a great degree, is our privi-
lege. Mothers, give more of your precious
time to the culture of the mind of those whose
votes are yet to rule the country; train the
yet susceptible minds of your sons to the fear
and love of God. With the first buddings
of intellect engraft the desire for useful knowl
edge, and the love of truth. Teach them to
set high standards and struggle hard to reach
them. If you love your country—if you love
your sons—ifyon would do good to your coon
try and to them, work, and work in your own
sphere. Take some of those precious hours
that you arc daily wasting in your devotion to
faihion and frivolity, and devote them to the
discharge of this God given right:
If we could all realize the vast importance
of faithfully discharging the duties of our own
sphere, what a change might be wrought in
society ! Fewer wives and mothers would:
wait and watch with such painful heart-sick:
ening anxiety for the return of the poor ine
briate from the midnight revel. Shorter
would be the record of those fearful crimes
which are not only disgracing our country-but
sending the souls of our sons and daughters to
Eternal death- I believe there has never been
a murder committed ; or any dark crime per
petrated which might not be attributed to a
want of proper training in early life. Upon
whom does this fearful responsibility rest?

of a chair, to work himself to the window, but
was unable to get out, and when the rest of
the family returned, who were out in the field
at work, they found him enve:oped in flames
and snatched him from the jaws of death by
pulling him out through the window. Ilis
