COURT AFFAIRS—Second Week —The
following civil cases, both very lengthy, oc
cupied the time of the Court during the entire
week, and were the only ones disposed of
John S. Miller vs. The Penna. R. 11. Com
This was an action brought by John S. Mil
ler, hotel keeper,
in this place, against the
Penna. Railroad Company to recover in dam
ages for loss sustained by the burning and
damaging of his property in the Exchange
Hotel on the 12th day of April, 1870, the plain
tiff.alledging that the same was occasioned by
sparks or cinders negligently emitted and
thrown upon the roof of the building by a
passing locomotive. The questions entering
into the case were, first, whether the building
was fired in the manner alleged, and second,
whether it was done negligently, or for want
of reasonable and ordinary care on the part of
the company or its employees. To sustain the
allegation of the plaintiff, a large amount of
evidence was offered, all of which was circum
stantial, no one having seen the sparks falling
upon or igniting the roof, but the weight of
the evidence seemed to be far towards estab
lishing the Part. A neighboring building had
been fired almost at the same moment; sparks
and pieces of cinder had been seen falling on
the opposite side of the building, a few mo
ments before; the engine, which was used as
a "shifter" on the Broad Top and Central
roads, was seen passing down, moving slowly,
laboring hard and throwing a large amount of
fire and sparks when going through town '
there had been no fire inside the hotel iti — lthe
time, and no other way of accounting for the
fire than on the hypothesis that the roof was
fired by sparks from the passing engine.
On the part of the defense, they suggested, -
and a number of witnesses called to support
it, that the fire must have originated under
the roof, and was not therefore caused by
sparks or cinders falling on it. This was sur
ported by the testimony of a number of wit
nesses to the effect that when first seen by
them,the smoke was coining up through the
shingles, before the fire was discovered on
the surface of the roof.
It was alleged on the part of the plaintiff
that there was negligence in the use of the
engine, and that it was unskilfuly used, and
from these causes an unusual amount of
fire was unnecessarily thrown, which would
be such an evidence of negligence as would
render the company liable, while on the 'part
of the defense it was claimed that the engine
was in good condition, with the usual spark
arrestzr, and in the only gate that it could
be used, to prove which a — number of witnes
ses including the employees engaged in run
ning the engine at the time, were called and
examined, the amount of whose testimony was
that the engine was in good order and run
with the usual amount of care.
Thirty-seven witnesses were examined in
the course of the trial, which commenced on
Monday afternoon, the case going to the jury
on Thursday evening. The jury after being
out about two hours returned a 'verdict in
favor of the defendant, for $2705.
Counsel for plaintiff, Messrs. Petrikin, Speer,
and Caldwell. The defense was conducted by
M'Douald & Co., vs. Nicholas Lewis.
Thii was an action brought by an Ohio
Manufacturing Company through their agent,
John Ross, to recover the price of a patent
reaper and mower, sold to the defendant,
Nicholas Lewis, a farmer residing in Tyrone
township, Blair county, which the defendant
alleged was worthless, and which he on that
account refused to pay for. The trial of the
case lasted two days, during which some thirty
witnesses were examined. The question was
one entirely for the jury, as to whether the
plaintiffs had fulfilled their part of the con
tract, and in so doing were entitled to recover.
A verdict was rendered in favor of the plain
tiffs, for $203,10, being the amount of the reap
er with interest from the time it was delivered.
Speer for plaintiff. S. S. Blair and Petrikin
SENTENCED.-Johu Elliott, convicted of the
larceny of a watch, last week, was sentenced
to the Penitentiary for one year.
Hannah Huff, convicted of assault and bat
tery upon Bridget Meehan, was sentenced to
pay a fine of $5 and the costs of prosecution.
HOW TO PATENT LANDS.—Long as
this county has been settled, there is still a
considerble amount of land within its limits
which has never been patented. For the in
formation of any who may desire to perfect
their titles, we publish the following directions
as to the propeNtethod of procedure in pat
enting lauds :
I. The patent must issue to the actual own
er of the land or party holding title under the
warrantee, or to the executors, trustees, or
heirs and legal representatives of the person
in whom title was vested at death, or to the
guardians or minor children of the deceased.
IL Warrantees who remain the owners of
the land warranted and surveyed to them, can.
obtain patents in their own names (if no ca
veat remains undetermined without furnish
ing any brief or statement of title, upon pay
ment of back purchase money, interest and
Executors, trustees and guardians re- I
presenting the warrantee, or his heirs, who
apply for patents, should produce evidence of
their appointment as such.
IV. When the land has passed Out of the
ownership of the original warrantee, or party
who took out the office-right, the appiicant
for patent will be requiredto furnish evidence
V. The present owner of a part of a tract of
land surveyed in pursuance of any given war
rant, desiring to have a patent in his own
name; can obtain it by having the county
surveyor make return of survey of such part.
The applicant will only be required to pay his
proportion of the whole amount due upon
the tract, with fees. Evidence of ownership
to accompany application.
VI. When an unpatented original tract has
been sold and sub-divided, the several present
owners may unite in an application for patent
and statement of title, and upon payment of
amount due, with patent and other fees, a
patent will issue to them, the said applicants,
their heirs and assigns, according to their re
spective rights and interests, without setting
forth the particular interests of each.
VII. In cases where it is difficult to submit
the evidence of title required by this office in
order to obtain a patent, any one or more of
the owners of an unpatented tract can, through
this Department, discharge the lien against
said tract by the payment of the purchase
money, interest and fees shown to be due by
the land-lien docket, and the interest since ac
crued, and a patent can at any time afterwards
issue to those entitled to it upon proof of
VIII. The accounts in the lien docket are
calculated to June 1, 1868. If to the amount
due, as shown in its proper column, there be
added the interest accuring from June 1,1868,
to the date of forwarding the docket to the
prothonotary, at the rate given in the column
of rate per cent. of interest, and on this sum
interest be calculated at the rate of six percent
from the time of forwarding the docket until
the date of the apple: lion for patent, it will
give the amount requires. to procure a patent.

JUMPING ON MOVING TRAINS.—A lad
named Chris. Coble was arrested yesterday by
officer Abraham Roat, and arraigned before
the Mayor, charged with jumping on and off
moving freight trains at the imminent risk of
his life and severe injuries. He was commit
ted to prison for ten days, the extreme penalty
of the law. It is to be hoped this example
will have a salutary effect on those boys ad

possible, and the severest punishment will be
visited upon those guilty, and brought before

TERRIBLE KEROSENE ACCIDENT.—
Three Persons Fatally Burned and Three Others
Seriously Injured.=On Tuesday evening of
last week, a distressing accident, resulting
from an attempt to replenish a kerosene oil
lamp, occurred at the house of Joseph McGar
vey, near Kittanning Point, some five miles
from this city. The particulars, as we learn
them from Wm. McGarvey, who resides near
by, and who arrived at the house shortly after
the accident, are about as follows : On the
evening named, Mrs. Brown, eldest daughter
of Joseph IticGarvey, with three sistars—two
of them young women and the other half grown
and a little brother, were together in a room
on the first floor of the house, when Mrs. 8.,
proceeded to fill a kerosene lamp with oil.
Notwithstanding the fact that the wick of the
lamp had been extinguished, and the only
light in the room was some distance off, the
oil can, containing near half a gallon of oil,
together with the lamp, suddenly exploded,
completely saturating the clothing of Mrs.
Brown and her youngest sister, (who was
standing by her side) with the fluid, which at
once ignited and enveloped them in flames.
The little girl was picked up by an elder
sister who carried her out of the house, laid
her down on the grass and attempted to tear
the clothes from her person, but before she
succeeded in doing so, the flames had done
their work on the head and body of the little
unfortunate one. She lived but a few hours
after the accident, death kindly relieving her
of her sufferings. The sister who carried her
out was quite severely burned on the hands
and arms in her endeavors to tear away the
When ars. Brown's clothing took fire, she
instantly ran up stairs to her husband, who
was in bed, seized a comfort and threw it
around her, and endeavored to smother the
flames. In this, however, he was unsuccess
ful. The comfort caught fire, and for a time
added to the flames. Suffocated by the smoke
and heat, Mrs. B. fell insensible to the floor,
where she laid until all her clothing was
burned away, and her flesh literally roasted on
her bones. !Jr. Brown was so badly burned
in his attempt to smother the flames, and so
much suffocated by the smoke that he could
render her no assistance after she fell. The
neighbors, who were attracted by the screams
of the family, and came to their relief, found
her just where she fell. Her injuries were of
such a nature that although Dr. Henderson
was immediately summoned no relief could be
afforded, and she died some three hours there
after, without being restored to consciousness.
The twe were buried iu Fairview Cemetery
on Thursday afternoon.
As intimated, Mr. Brown w as severely burn
in his efforts to save his wife. His hands,
feet and legs were blistered, but his greatest
injury was over his bowels and stomach, and
most likely, the inhaling of smoke and flame.
Dr. Henderson gave hint-every attention, and
did all in his power to relieve his suffering,
but the flames had done their work with him,
and death relieved him of further misery at
four o'clock on Saturday morning, and on
Saturday evening he was laid beside his wife
and her sister in Fairview Cemetery. Mr. 13.
was known to many of our citizens, having
formerly been employed in the R. R. Compa
ny's Blacksmith shop.
The little boy referred to, was, at the time
of the explosion, sitting on the end of the ta
ble where the lamp was being filled. A por
tion'of the burning fluid falling upon his right
cheek, shoulder and arm, burned severely.
Ile succeeded in quenching the fire before
other parts of his clothing ignited, after which
he exhibited a coolness and presence of mind
which would have done credit to an older
head; and which certainly saved the house
from being burned. While all the family were
screaming and in confusion, be extinguished
the fire unon himself, then hurriedly secured
a bucket of water, and when the neighbors
arrived he was dashing water upon the window
case and the papering on the wall, which had
been fired by buzning fluid, and had the flames
near about extinguished. Such coolness and
presence of mind, in one so young, amid such
scenes, deserves special mention and a re
The other sister who was present, was also
burned about the arms, bands and face, in her
endeavors to afford relief to those whose
clothing had taken fire.
It is really sickening to contemplate the
agony which these unfortunate persons must
have endured, and we hope it may be long
ere we shall again be compelled to record such
a disaster.—Altoona Tribune.

A REALLY GOOD INVENTION.—It is
very seldom we commend to the public in this
way patent improvements and inventions,
which belong more properly to our advertise
ing columns. What we have to commend,
however, so deeply concerns the health, •hap
piness and comfort of our American women,
that we make no apology for giving it our
most emphatic approval and endorsement.
The invention referred to is the great Ameri
can Washer, which is claimed to be in every
conceivable respect superior to any other
"washer" extant. It is the smallest, most
compact, most portable, most easily operated,
and is not at all liable to get out of order. Its
construction is so simple, that even a child
can be successfully taught to operate in a
creditably short space of time.
Some of the most prominent and desirable
features in this "washer," which is an induce
ment in itself, are worthy of especial commen
dation. They are these: It is always ready
for use; there is no adjusting; no screws to
confuse or annoy, and no delay whatever in
adapting it. Everything seems to have been
done that ingenuity could suggest; and in our
estimation it is simply a practical, sensible
and beautiful invention, and requires to be
seen to be appreciated, which cannot fail to
please the taste of the most fastidious.—Phil
adelphia Weekly Press.
ON Monday night a burglar attempted
to rob the store at Martha Furnace, on the
Bald Eagle Valley railroad, kept by a man
named Thompson, by attempting to effect an
entrance through the transom over the door.
Mr. Thompson heard the noise, and fired ono
shot out of his revolver, intending to frighten
the burglar away. On opening the door the
next morning, he discovered the burglar lying
dead, shot through the head. He seemed to
have been standing upon a barrel, with his
head in position to receive the shot. A letter
directed to Miss Anna Robinson, Pittlburgh,
was found upon his person, but nothing to
identify Wm.—Altoona Tiibune.

CHICAGO'S GREAT SHIP CANAL.—J.
C. Blair, Esq., of this place, having taken con
siderable interest in the project to connect
Chicago with the Mississippi river, by means
of a Canal large enough to admit the passage
of heavy Steamboats, wrote to the Mayor of
that city for a minute statement of the plan
adopted, and in reply, the Mayor sent
him the following detailed statement, which
is very clear and satisfactory :
Oman°, August 21, 1871.
_ _ _
J. C. BLAIR, Ese.—Derir 86 :—Yo . ur favor
of the 17th, is at hand this morning. The
original plan of the Illinois and Michigan
Canal, which extends from Chicago to LaSalle,
on the Illinois river, was to make this cut as
it has now been done and to feed the Canal
from Lake Michigan. The State prosecuted
the work on that plan from 1836 to 1840, I
think, until it failed, and State Bonds were
sold in New York at 1.6 cents on the dollar.
Then a plan was got up by the Bondholders
to finish the Canal and have entire control of
it until they were paid. It was found then,
on examination, that it would cost near $3,-
000,000 to finish it on the Deep Cut plan, but
by having one lock of 8 feet lift at Chicago,
and substitute Feeders and Pumping Wors
for the supply of water, the Canal egad be
'put in operation for about $1,500,000. This
amount, or something like it, the Bondholders
advanced and the Canal was completed in
Some six years ago a commission of Engin
eers was appointed to recommend a plan for
purifying the Chicago River, which, owing to
the discharge of Sewers into it, had become
very offensive. This Board of Engineers
among a good many plans recommended the
excavating of the Canal according to the orig
inal plan so as to feed from the Lake and a
little descent was made in the Canal so as to
make a current of about one mile per hour,
which was sufficient to empty our entire river
from the Lake to the Canal four times a day.
This work was accomplished in the early
part of July, and the water of Lake Michigan
was turned westward on its way to the Gulf
of Mexico. Our river was then very offensive
indeed, but in 24 hours there was a very
marked change and in a few days the water
in the river was comparatively pure, and in a
sanitary point of view it is a great blessing to
Chicago. The cut is about 26 miles long and
an average depth below the bottom of the old
Canal of about 9 feet, and that part that was
widened was an average of 16 or 18 feet in
depth—about 8 or 9 miles of the distance is
through solid rock. It creates a magnificent
water power at the west end of the cut, hav
ing Lake Michigan for its reservoir to draw
from. The next move will be to widen this
Canal and make slack-water navigation from
its west end 26 miles to LaSalle, so as to
bring Mississippi steamers to Chisago, and this
will be done at no very distant day. The Illi
nois river from LaSalle to its junction with
the Mississippi is now being improved by
Dams and Locks and in a few years we shall
have uninterrupted navigation between Chica
go and St. Louis during the whole season,
whereas heretofore there has only been good
navigation for about two months in the year
at high water.
I have written this hastily in my office, but
it will give you a general idea of what has
been done. Very respectfully,
R. B. MASON, Mayor.
KISSING THE Boos.— Mr. Editor :
While on a short visit to the Court during the
late session, I observed that every witness
sworn kissed the book. FrOm previous visits,
as well as from the testimony of others, and
observation on this occasion, I infer, that this
is a common method of swearing in your
court. And truly the old book—Bible if it
be—that is used, gives evidence of being well
kissed, as the back is worn off, so that it has
to be tied up with a cord. Now why is it in
this protestant county of Huntingdon, so many
adopt this papal manner of swearing, rather
than the Scripture jesture—the uplifted hand?
Some I apprehend do so thoughtlessly, with
out ever considering whether it is right or
wrong; some through the influence of custom,
they have seen others do so and they imitate
them ; and others may think that it sh +ws
high reg-rd for the solemnity of an oath. But
lam persuaded that no intelligent protestant
would corrupt the ordinance of the oath in this
way, it he once had his attention properly
turned to the matter. The oath is an ordinance
of God—an act of worship—and to be accept
able to him, must be administered according
to the divine appointment. The teaching of
the Saviour is applicable to this, as well as to
every other religious rite. "In vain do ye
worship me teaching for doctrines the com
mandments of men."
,- 105 00
The form of an oath most frequently recog
nized in Scripture is the uplifted hand. God
himself is represented as adopting this form,
as in Deu. 32. 40, For I lift up my hand to
Heaven, and say, I live forever. The angel of
the covenant, adopted the same form, Rev. 10,
5,6, And the angel lifted up his hand to Heav
en and swore by Hint that liveth forever and
ever—that there should be time no longer.
And man generally used the same, Gen. 14:
22, 23 And Abram said to the King of Sodom,
I have lifted up my band to the Lord, the
most high God—that I will not take anything
that is thine. Many other passages might be
quoted to the same effect. That the Scrip
ture does recognize this gesture there can be
no doubt. But persons will search the Scrip
tures in vain, for any recognition of the form
of Kissing the Book. It is entirely a haman
invention, and without any authority from Him
who appointed the ordinace of the oath. But
to see fully the impropriety of this practice,
we must remember that ;t has a history. The
practice of kissing, as an act of worship, has
been in bad company. It is a heathen idolo
trous rite. The heathen, ages ago, adopted
the practice of kissing their idol gods. And
when the Israelites, in the time of Jeroboam,
introduced idolotry, they worshiped after this
manner, and kissed the calves that were set
up at Bethel and Dan. And when the Lord
describes his seven thousand hidden ones, in
the days of Ahab, they were those that had
not bowed the knee to the image of Baal, nor
kissed him. And when idolotry was again
introduced at the rise of the Roman anti-Christ,
we find this practice again in company wiht it,
kissing the book in the mass, kissing the
Pope's toe, &c. Here we see the origin of
book kissing in the idolatrous rite of the
mass. Now let Protestants open their eyes to
the fact that boot kissing is an idolatrous
papal rite and then ask themselves if they are
justifiable in using it? This practice with
many other remnants of Popery survived the
Reformation, but was severely condemned by
the Reformed churches and divines of the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The
National Synod of the Reformed Church in
France, assembled in Gapp, 1803, decided that
this practice was of dangerous consequence
and should not be followed. The sentiment
of the Protestant world to-day is against it,
and why should it be practiced ? It is a vio
lation of God's law, and certainly intelligent
christians should be startled not only at this,
but they should be strrtled when they think
of the company with which they class them
SABBATH SCHOOL Plc-NIC.—Mr. Edi
tor Shaver's Creek, a mile or so above
Petersburg is a Tannery, near that Tannery is
a grove ; and in that grove on Saturday, the
19th inst., there was a pic-nic. It was gotten
up by the "Bethel Sunday School." There
was a multitude of people there ; old and
young, from babes in arms to old men leaning
upon their staves. The people came in all
kinds of conveyances, but a feature of the
day was great wagon-loads of people, the
wagons festooned with spruce and flowers.
The day was lovely; so were the ladies. The
cakes and flowers were sweet; so we suppose
were the kisses which the young men got—
we, being old, got none. There was fine sing
ing by the school, and fine swinging also.
A prayer was offered and an address made
by the Rev. J. C. Wilhelm. The address was
based upon something like the following form
ula : S. S. S.
Sunday School Scholars, Singing Sweet
Songs, Search the Sacred Scriptures, Seek
their Soul's Salvation, Stay the Serpent Sin,
Serve their Sovereign Savior. Because the
Serpent Stings the Soul, and the Saviour Se
cures its Safety.
Besides the stand, which was beautifully
decorated, stood a neat and handsome white
banner with the word "Bethel" on one side,
and on the other the motto ' 1 In God we
Trust," in gold letters, surrounded with stars
of gold and bows of red and blue ribbon. The
dinner had to be eaten to be appreciated. We
will not tantalize your readers appetites by a
description of it. The exercises concluded
with croquet and various evolutions to which
the young flolks are addicted on such occa
sions. The whole affair passed off pleasantly,
and everybody went home delighted.
