Improved Fire and Water Proof
RESPECTFULLY inform the citizens of }Tar-
LL Reading, Lancaster, Lebanon, and
their vicinities, that we are prepared to put on
roofs on must liberal terms, and at the shortest
Weyespectfully call the attention of persons a
bout to build, to our invaluable method of roofing,
now much used throughout the principal cities of
the United States and their vicinities. This mode
of roofing having all the combined requisites of
cheapness, Durability, and Security against Fire
and Water, and dispensing with high gable walls;
the roofs require an inclination of not more than
three-quarters 0) of an inch to the foot, and in
many eases saving the entire cost of rafters--the
ceiling joist being used.
The gutters are made of the same material,
without any extra charges ; consequently, our
roofs are put up at almost half the cost of either
Tin, Slate, or Shingles. The material being of
an imperishable nature, it surpasses all others in
Durability ;—besides, in case of any casualty, it
is the most easily repaired of any other roof now
in use. Yet, the best proof we can offer as to its
being both fire and water proof, are our many re
ferences, to any one of whom we .are at liberty
to refer.
N. B.—But let it be distinctly understood,
(since we manufacture our own composition, and
do the work in person,) that we warrant all our
work proof against both Fire and Water • if they
prove contrary, we will most willingly abide the
The materials Leing mostly non-conductors of

Edged by the foaming roar,
Words never breathed before,
Sound sweet to somebody.

A Wedding llace.
Among the Huzerebs—people of A
sia—the following is the way weddings
are managed :
The suitors of the maiden, nine in
number, appear in the field, all unarm
ed; but mounted on the hest horses they
can procure ; while the bride herself,
on a beautiful Turkotnan stallion, sur
rounded by her relations, anxiously sur
veys the group of lovers.
The maiden has a certain start given,
which she avails herself of to'gain a
sufficient distance from the crowd to
erial?!.o her to manage her steed with
freedom, so as to assist in his pursuit
the suitor whorrOrshte prefers. On a sig.
nal from the father, all the horsemen
gallop after the fair one, and which ev
er first succeeds in encircling her waist
with his arm, no matter:khether
greeable or to her.choice, is entitled to
claim her as his wife. After the usual
delays incident upon such interesting
occasions, the maiden quits the circle
of her relatives, and 'putting her steed
into a harti-gallop, darts into_the " open
plain. When satisfied with her posi
tion, she turns round to the impatient
youths and holds her arms towards them,
as if to woo their approach. This is
the moment for giving the signal to
commence the chase, and each of the
impatient. youths dashing his pointed
heels into his courser's sides, darts like
the unhooded hawk in pursuit of the
fugitive dove. The savannah is gener
ally extensive, say twelve miles long
and three in width, and as the horse
men speed across the plain the favored
lover becomes soon apparent by the ef
forts of the maiden to avoid all others
who might approach her.
On a certain occasion, after two hour's
racing, the number of pursuers was. re
duced to four, who were all together
and gradually gaining on the pursued;
with them is the favorite, but, alas! his
horse suddenly fails in his speed, and,
as she anxiously turns her head, she per
ceives in dismay, the hapless position
of her lover; each of the fortunate lead
ers eager with anticipated triumph,
bending his head on his horse's mane,
shouts at the top of his voice, "I come,
my Peri ; I'm your lover." But she
making a sudden turn, and lashing her
horse almost to fury, darts across the
path, and makes for that part of the
dhummon, (plain.) where her lover was
endeavoring to goad on his weary steed.
The three others instantly checked
their career, but in the hurry to turn
back, two of the horses are dashed furi
ously against each other, so that both
steeds and riders rolled over on the
plain. The maiden laughed; for she
well knew she could easily elude the
single horseman, and flew to the point
where her lover was. But her only
pursuer was not so easily shaken, off;
making a last and desperate: effort, he
dashed alongside the maiden, and
stretching out his arm, almost won the
unwilling prize; hut she, bending her
head to her horse's neck, eluded , his
grasp and wheeled off again. Ere the
discomfitted horseman could again ap
proach her, her lover's arm was around
her waist, and amidst the shouts of the
spectators they turned towards the fort.
There are in Philadelphia, nine brew.
cries devoted exclusively to the mak
ing of ale and porter, and the amount
brewed each week is about 4,600 casks
or 138,000 gallons. The barley used
in making of malt is grown principally
in New York and Canada, and costs
about $1.60 per kushel when delivered
in Philadelphia, and after being made
into malt isAvorth $2 per bushel. The
annual consumption of barley in the
city is estimated at 600,000 bushels,
besides 350,000 pounds of hops, which
are worth 15 cents per pound. The
number of casks of al3 and porter
made annually is some 250,000, which
sell at an average of about each.
The cost of the barley and hops alone
consumed will amount to over one mil
lion dollars.
A Thrilling IncidfnL
Returning from a visit in New Or
leans, we were fortunate enough to se
cure passengers. Among the iadies,one
especially interested us. She was the
widow of a wealthy planter, and had only
one child to her farther's house. Her
devotion to the child was very touching
and the eyes of her old black nurse
would fill with tears as she besought
her mistress "not to love that boy too
much, or the Lord would take him away
for her."
We.passed through the canal of Louis
ville, and stopped for a few moments at
the wharf, when the nurse, wishing to
see the city ; walked out on the guard,
at the hack of the boat, where, by a sud
den.effort, the child spring from . her
arms into the terrible current that sweeps
towards the falls, and disappeared imme
diately. The confusion which ensued,
attracted the attention of
. a gentleman
who was sitting in the fore part of the
boat quietly reading. Rising hastily,
he asked for some article the child had
worn. The nurse handed him a tiny
apron she had torn off in her efforts to"
retain the'baby
.her arms. Turning
to a splended Newfoundland dog that
was eagerly watching . his countenance,
he pointed first to the apron, and then
to the spot where the child had gone un
der. In an instant the noble dog leap.
ed into the rushing Water, and also dis
appeared. By this time the excitement
was intense, and some persons on shore ;
supposing that the dog was lost as well
as the child, they procured a boat and
started off to 'search for the body. Just
at this moment the clog was- seen far
away with something in his mouth.—
Bravely he struggled.Witlythe waves,but
it was evident his strength was failing
fast, and more than one breast gave a
sigh of relief as the boat reached him,
and it was announced that it was 'still
alive They were brought on board—
the dog and the child.
Giving a single glance to satisfy her
self that the child was really living, the
young mother rushed forward, and sink
ing beside the dog, threw her arms a
round -his neck, and burst into, tears—
Not many could view the sight unmov
ed, and; as she caressed. and kiSsed • his
shaggy head, she looked up to his. own•
er and said—
"Oh sir, I must have this dog! I am
rich, take all I have—everything—but
give me my child's preserver,"
The gentleman,smi led, and patting his
dog's head, said, "I am very glad, mad
am, he has been of service to you, but
nothing in the world could induce me
to part with him."
The dog looked as though he perfectly
understood what they were talking
about, and giving his sides a shake, laid

A Touching Incident of
Fraternal Love.
We have never read a more touching
ly beautiful incident than the following,
which occurred a short time since in
one of the French courts. The natural
nobility of the brother, and the affec
tionate faith of the sister, are examples
worthy to be followed by the unfortu
nate youth of our own, or any other
country, as au evidence that, however
dark the, day, an honest heart and a firm
resolve will overcome the greatest ob

Rome, a pretty girl, with blue eyes and
fair hair, poorly but neatly clad, was

- Oh, sir! what can he do for me?"
"The Court must send you to the
House of Correction."
"Here I am sister; here I am ! do not
fear l' cried a childish voice from the
other end of the Court. And at.the
same instant a little boy with lively
countenance started forth from amidst
the crowd, and steed before the judge.
"Who are yogi?" said he. •
"James Rome, the brother of this
poor little girl."
"Your age?"
"And what do you want ?"
"I come to claim my'Lucille."
"But have you the_ means of provid.
ing for her?"
"Yesterday I had none, but now I
have. Don't be afraid Lucille."
"0, how good you are, James!"
"Well, let us see, my boy," said the
magistrate. "The Court is disposed to
do all -that• it can for your sister; but
you must give us some explanation."
"About a fortnight ago, sir," ex

on the floor. But it appears that she
had not enough to eat. One day. she
begged on the Boulevard, and was taken
up. When I heard that, I said to my

so; you must find something better. I

"I will come and fetch you early to

He then threw himself into the arms
of his sister, and both wept warm tears
of affection.
TESTIMONY.—The trial of the celebrat
ed cow case between Messrs. E. C.
Vore and J. M." Byers, of Mount Ver.
non, Ohio, was resumed on Thursday
last, and did not terminate till Saturday
evening, when the jury returned a ver
dict in favor of the defendant, Byers,
for eighteen dollars damages. Messrs.
Vance and Cooper for the plaintiff, and
Messrs. Delano and Sapp for the de
fendant. We need hardly add, after
naming . the attorneys, that the .case was
conthicted with zeal and much ability
on both sides.
This, we presume, is the most extra
ordinary case of the kind that ever oc•
curred in Ohio. At the commence
ment of this replevin suit (for such it
was) each party had the most entire
confidence that he would be able to ad
duce such an array of unequivocal testi
mony in his right to the cow and calf
in dispute beyond any reasonable doubt.
And certain it is that the plaintiff did
produce a most formidable array of tes
timony. So clear and strong was the
evidence produced by the plaintiff' that
when he rested his case there was ap
parently little chance of success for the
defendant. In addition to his own pos
itive testimony, he produced some eigh
teen other witnesses who identified the
cow as his.
Among those witnesses was Mr.
Thomas Boyle, of whom 'the plaintiff
said he had purchased the cow in ques
tion. Also, the wife of Mr. Boyle, and
several others of the family. Also, Mr.
Jonathan Hunt,.who raised the cow pur•
chased by plaintiff. Also, John Sliger
and wife; who at one time owned the
Vore cow. Also, plaintiff's mother•in.
law, Mrs. Rawley, who had milked the
cow for some time. On the other hand,
the defendant testified positively to the
cow as his, and produced some twenty.
five other Witnessei, who identified the
cow' as his. Among these witnesses,
were Dr. Wheaton, of whom the cow
was purchased for defendant; and Wm.
Jackson, who purchased the cow fur de
fendant ; and Win. Robinson, who with
Jackson when he made the purchase.—
Also, Benjamin S. Ide, of whom Di.
Wheaton purchased the cow. Also,
Mas. Jackson, who had the cow in-pos
session for some two years. Also, per
sons who, knew the cow on the farm of
the defendant, while in possession of
Jackson. Also, Persons who knew the
cow owned by Dr. Wheaton and Ide.—
Also, the mother and daughter of de.
fendant, and A. Boyd, who took care of
the cow some time in that city,

The Spectre Fire Ship.
Many, many years ago, a ship named
the Palestine sailed from Holland, with
a large number of passengers, bound to
a new home in North America. Soon
after leaving port it became generally
known that many of :he passengers
were wealthy and had a large amount
of gold and silver in their possession.—
Three weeks elapsed when the captain
and his crew conceived the idea of en
riching themselves by plundering and
murdering the inoffensive and unsuspi
cious persons in their power. They first
reported the provisions spoilt, but man
aged to sell hard buiscuits for a guinea
each. This process was at length sus•
pended, and the disease and famine
had full sway.. The winds were favor
able, all were not yet dead, and lo ! the
ship was floating off Block Island.—
The few passengers who still survived
might still live to tell their tale of woe,
and so the ship must be destroyed with
all her living freight. The captain and
crew placed their ill-gotten wealth in
their two yawls, and having scuttled and
set fire to the ship, they embarked for
the neighboring island, and landed just
as the great mass of flames sank hissing
in the deep. The pirates told- the is
landers, a plausible story, and for many
months they lived in a house which is
still pointeal out to the curious stranger,
but is a mere ruin. The pirates quar
reled, separated and left for parts un
known. For many years thereafter the
house was deserted by all persons of
flesh and blood, but thickly peopled
with ghosts—with pale women in white
old men reduced to skeletons' and chi!.
dren with bloody faces, and whenever
they made their appearance at the witch
ing time of night there were heard the
most frightful cries of anguish. In pro
cess of time ; however, the spectres all
disappeared; but of late years, whenever
a great storm is about to lash the ocean
into fury, the fireship is distinctly seen
in the oiling; her hull a mass of cinder,
and her saile sheets of pure flame.
Many old men have looked upon this
phantom many times, and some of them
allege that they have seen the sufferers
imploring Heaven for succor, and beard
their shrieks of despair.
Life in Texas.
In one of his graphic letters to the
New Orleans Picayune, its sheep rear
ing editor, George W. Kendall tells 1; 1 . °
good story conn:cted with the recent
Waco Convention in Texas.
A lot of the members, during a recess
in the regular business, had adjourned
to a neighboring grocery, Mr. Britton,
of Corpus Christi, among the number,
and were taking a general drink all
round. Some were calling for gin tod
dies, others for brandy straits—some for
this decoction, and others for that—
when into.the groggery stalked a tall,
lank, sallow complexioned member from
close up on the Arkansas line, dressed
in a hickory bark coat, copperas colored
trowsers, and drab imitation beaver hat.
"Come straight up to the trough,
stranger, and smile," said Britton.
"Don't mind if I do take a drink a
bout this time," retorted the gentleman
in hickory bark.
"What shall it be 1" continued the
member from Corpus Christi.
"Well, I believe take a parcel al
whiakey : I was brought up mostly on
that, and it agrees with me," retorted
the stranger.
"Sweetnin' in it?" continued the
"Straight," retorted the other.
"Do the gentleman up a parcel of
whiskey, large size," was the order giv
en to the bar keeper, and the neat mo
ment the laugh was general. Ther e is
fuu yet in Texas, despite the drouth, and
will be so long as Britton remains in
the. State.

to the effect that "A human leg and
