" Ainvier Inns.t foul, as in the host it is;
this must foul, strange and unnatural,"
On the night of the 28th December,
.707, a murder was committed at the
,heetz farm, adjoining the village of
,healTerstown,, Ileidleberg township,
auphin, now Lebanon county, which,
`ndependent of the daring and atrocious
lirticter of the act,was marked by sonic
cry singular incidents, illustrative of
he manners of the times. Peter Sheetz,
he hero of the story, was for many years
client of mine, and has• often told me
lie history of the atnir. The facts here

Peter Slteetz, the father pf the tour•

who owned Coe farm on which the

erns made to her in his fife-iiine,
imenting to a considerable portion of
ie whole sum, were to be taken as part
the legacy, He devised the whole
;,triallitler of his esipte, consisting of 250
rc..9 of very fine land, with excellent
ildings, and a handsome sum of mon
,s to his two sons, providing that in case
the death of either without issue, his
are should go to the surviving brother,
pnyingin dint event;€sQUto the doug,h
,r, and in case of the deatii:of both with.

aughtcr for life, and after her death to
e heirs of her body. This made it an
tailed estate, in case the two brothers
'ed without issue, which in Pennsy lva.
is, can be cut off by the acknowledg.
lent of a deed in fee in open court by
sband and wife.
Francis and Peter Sheetz were both
ou ng men of extraordinary physical
'top ortions, but very deficient in into!.
%ct and education. Peter, in after life,
ecame a noted fighter. In'-that 'day
ten fought for the love of the thing,
d were known all over the.*rman set
cements, according to their prowess.—
y grandfather told me, that he and his
others, who were well known in this
Lspect, had tow•shirts made on purpose
put on when they went to fairs or
r . .,ttalions, at which places the guavas
year were settled by a rough and
ble fight, in which it was considered
'triumph for one to tear the.shirt of the
er to pieces. He acquired no great
ill in these battles, as he went into the

, but to the last, enjoyed a tight very

'fie. lie beat them both, but was
bliged to keep his bed for six weeks.
any other feats of his might be relat
t,which his enormous size and strength
abled him successfully to perform.--
liauer, the brother-in•law, had
mewhat more education than the
! others, and although not remarkable
•r intellect, was much superior to them
that respect. His morals were bad,
d he was also a man of groat strength.
The old gentleman died in 1795, and
:e publication of his will produced a
olent family quarrel. Hauer entered
caveat, but was advised to, and did
ithdraw it as useless. Francis was
enty.one at his father's death, and Pe.
r, three years younger. Knowing the
trerne ignorance and superstition of
brothers•in-law, he tried various ali
t d expedients to induce them to an
al division of the property. I-Ie pre
ded that the ghost of old Peter had
,peareo to him and declared that he
could not rest in his grave, in conse
quence of his injustice to his daughter.
Finding that although the boys were
much alarmed, their acquisitiveness was
proof against this story, he wrapped
himself in a sheet, and entered their
house at night, and personating the old
gentleman made many lamentations,
over his own dreadful condition,, and
the cruelty of his sons in not relieving
him. The boys although terribly alarm
ed, fired at him, and finding that the
ghost fled, pursned, seized and exposed'
him. He had made several other efforts
of the same kind, His creditors, who
during his father•in-law's life had been
content to give him time, now began to
press him. At this critical moment,
when he was revolving on some new
expedient, by which to accomplish his
ends, the terrible project which was
eventually partially accomplished, was
suggested to him, by a man who had his
own purpose in the business.
Charles 'McManus and Patrick Don
agog had come over from Ireland in
the same vessel before these events took
place. Being very poor, they consulted
with each other how to make a living in
the new country to which they were go
ing, and, if possible, escape forever
from their wretched condition. Being
also very wicked, they agreed to travel
together through the country, and find
some rich man who had an only (laugh-,
ter. McManus who was good looking,
had some education, and was besides
quite a young man, was to court and
marry her. The plan was then to kill
father and daughter, sell the property,
and divide the proceeds between them.
In pursuance of this hellish design they
had wandered about through the coun
try, until Providence brought them to
the vicinity of Selnefferstown. The dif
finulty about the will of old Peter
Sheetz made a great noise through the
country-side, as well as the efforts of
Hauer, to set it aside. After some con
' sultation they agreed to broach a plan
to Hauer for the murder of Francis arid
Peter. They intended to let him be
hung, well k twirl rig that suspicion would
first settle on him—McManus was then
to court his widow, and the original
scheme to be carried out. According.
ly they approached Hauer, and the LlU
fortunate Intel agreed to it, provided he
could not got them out of the way, ac•
cording to ectlaiii plans which he had
,formed, which he carried out with re
gard to Peter, and which will be level•
oiled is the course of the ensuing nar
rative to the proper understanding of
which these preliminary statements are

Mr. Haltletnan, the candidate for Sen
ator, is an present editor of the Patriot
end Union. He performed good ser
vice for the cause in the campaign lass
fall, and visited this county making
speeches on several . occasions. He is
a gentleman of talent and true Democ
racy, and his nomination by the Democ
racy of Dauphin will, we think, be ac
quiesced in with pleasure by his party
friends in Lebanon county. Below we
append his remarks before the conven
tion on accepting the nomination :
Gen tirlon of the ren imt i—You have to-day,
un a tiimowiy, and on the first ballot, nominated
me to the highest candidature within your gift.
For the honor which you hare conferred, and the
compliment which you have paid me, I am pro
ton. dly grateful. Ey your action you have prov
ed that I am without enemies, and that mycarcer
as an editor, and conduct as a man meets your ap -
proval. As I have never before accepted a nomi
nation for political office, I am, so Mity, upon the
threshold of part - ism is life. lam about launching
my boat on the troubled sea of political contests;
and thanks to you,
the sails are swelled with the
breezes of popular favor, and the sympathetic ac
clamations of the party with which I have volun
tarily, connected myself'. The men of Dauphin
county, my friends, many of whom have known
me from childhood, and ache hare known my fa
ther, whom I revered most on earth, have offered
me this compliment. In Jlauphin county, I was
barn, hero I have been bred; anti I 'hope, the
grass shall grow green over my bones as they
moulder to dust in Dauphin county earth.
The excellent gentlemen who have been nomi
nated with myself, as your representatives,
course aware that they have been selected to lead
an almost forlorn hope. But we accept the trust.
If we fall in the breach, we fall in the perform
ance of duty. We storm the enemy's citadel,and
like holy crusaders, we shall endervor to wr e n c h
Dauphin county from the hands of the infidels.—
We may fail, but it will be with a conscious
ness of duty fulfilled. We do not forget that on
each succeeding year the opposition majority is
reduced. By harmonious and united action, wo
hope to break the enemy's ranks. In serried col
umns, and shoulder to shoulder, we shall attempt
to break the centre of a disorganized a nd quarrel
ing enemy. Again, I repeat, that although it is
not in mortals to command success, we shall de
3IRDS.—It is to be regretted that the
Bird law is not enforced against sports
men. In the country a person can trav
el for miles and scarcely hear the sweet
note of a single bird—all , killed. The
pleasure derived in shooting the little
creatures cannot certainly justify 'flak
ing the earth and air a solitude—as it
is at present away from mans' habita
tions. If our farmers would make a few
examples of the "killers" it might have
a salutary effect.

(*" On Friday evening of last week
the pipes extending from the Lebanon
Valley Railroad Depot to the Brandy
wine creek, were filled with water, in
order to secure suction by means of a
steam engine. The water was forced
from the Quittapahilla through hose into
an elevated tank, by the Perseverance
Suction Eng;ne. It required, we learn,
100,000 gallons of water, which was
forced up in art uninterrupted stream.
We are advised, that Mr. Joel
Spyker, whose nomination for the Leg.
islature by the Democracy of Jefferson
county we noticed several weeks ago,
is not a native of Berks county, but
was born and raised in Jonestown, Leb
anon county. We were misled by one
of the Reading papers. Berks has many
valuable jewels in her own right, and

TALL CORN STALK.—There is a Dem
ocratic Corn Stalk in our neighbor
Christian Henry's garden, that probably
heats all ever produced in the State.—
It measured 14 feet 2 inches in height,
and reminds us of the tallest kind of
Democratic majorities given at last
week's elections. We challenge the
county to produce a taller specimen.—
It is still growing finely.
. Kr Two weeks ago, when we an
nounced the opposition ticket, as noth
ing was said about a candidate for the
Assembly i we took it for granted that
Mr. Hoffman, of Heidleberg, would be
renominated for a second term, accord
ing to custom. We are now pretty well
satisfied that we were in error in that
respect, and that he will be obliged to
give way to D. W, Leeds, hailing, we
believe, from Millcreek township.—
Where there is an effect there is always
a cause—so philosophers tell us. In
Mr. Hoffman's case the cause of his be
ing "sot back" is produced by his vote
in the last Legislature in favor of grant
ing three millions of dollars by the state
towards the building of the Sunbury
and Erie Rail-road. It is, and very tru
ly, supposed by the Managers of the
party in this county that Mr. Hoffman's
defeat would be certain with that ill-ad
vised vote staring him in the face. In
counties not interested in the Sunbury
and Erie railroad, the renomination of
any gentleman who voted for that out
rageous grant would be political suicide.
When Mr. Hoffman was advised to give
his vote in favor of that bill he little
knew or thought that it was to "kill him
off;" and that his advisers were, deeper
and farther-seeing in political scheming
than he was. They led him to his own

When the Deinocrats have the power to re*arti their
political friends, it unfortunately too often happens that
some of them arc forgetful of their political friends and
reward their political enemies. The reverse is the ease
with the opposition, who take care of their friends and
permit their adversaries to pursue the even tenor of
their ways. An exemplification of the perfidy of some
democrats, when clothed with power, we had last win

This, I learn, is precisely the state of affairs in all
our Sabbath Schools, which certainly does not re
fleet much credit upon those parents who allow
their children to perambulate the country iu

ny who are sent away from home with the express
purpose of attending Sunday School, violate the
day by playing truaq, which should induce pa
rents to pay frequent visitncto their respective

Mn. EDITOR:—As yuti'are undoubtedly aware
of the fact, that two stage coaches are now daily
passing between this place and Fredericksbitrg,
via Jonestown, taking passengers at low rates,
on account of the strong, opposition between the
rival coaches, thus afford an excellent opportuni
ty to the lovers of traveling, (printers in particu
lar) to take a pleasure excursion for the "benefit
of their health," during these sweltering days—
as August bids fait to take all the honors of the
hot season. To take advantage of the warm
weather, "in the long mouth of August," in white
linens and no cravats, panting like a turtle turn
ed on his hack on the (kallipagos Islands, accom
panied by a friend, I paid a flying visit to the vil
lage of Jonestown, and after having put up at one
of the hotels we wended our way Co the Swatam,
one of the finest and most picturesque streams in
the State, there to "dive like a feather and swim
like a stone," as the poet Would have it. But af
ter plunging in, Alligator style, we found that
we really could buoy the "beautiful blue sea,"
and therefore unanimously' concluded there must
be reality in all things. 'Swatara, however, for
which we sighed so incontinently, we soon found
could even not keep us cool, and after a minutes'
"consideration, deliberation and rcileption," we
set it down as a mere brook in our estimation—it
having grown beautifully less by degrees—and
concluded to leave for the magnanimous and
sweeping Atlantic, provided we arc not debarred
by that mingled curse and blbssing of humanity—
business, in which we are stYctlensively engaged
After returning to our trend-quarters and tak
ing tea, .te., we set out in ti carriage, with-the ex
press purpose of seeing thOsights ! With a noble
charger we proceeded to the break in the canal. at
a 2.40 rate, as though our preicnce there could
not be dispensed with, which caused many to set
us down as the head officers of a corps of ertgi
neeral":lVc now become intiiii4a with the idea that
we nittstbe of some consequence amongour friends
of the interior. At the break we found a number
of laborers busily engaged, and not a stone re
mained unturned that could be of any available
service. There was every hope of a speedy com
pletion of the break when we left, and the man
ner in which we returned was indeed a caution to
outsiders, our speed outvieing that of the renown
ed Gilpin! In passing over the (I had almost
said Rocky) mountains, afforded a delightful view
of the surrounding country, and while at an ele
vation of several hundred feet (not miles) we halt
ed our dashing and foaming steed, and gazed with
admiration over a range of country of unsurpass
ed fertility and beauty—
The broad teeming acres studded numerously With
happy homes of plenty, and thethriving village
of Jonestown, was indeed a splendid scene„ and
disclosed vast sources of wealth. The road seem
ed strange, and yet how often• in former years have
I traveled it. The stretches of forest trees seem
to have changed their former selves. The "old
familiar face" of Nature was oddly rejuvenized.
I perceive that the bountiful harvest is about
ending, oats bringing in the "glorious rear." Ev
erything in the shape - of fruit presents a promis
ing appearance—arV apple-butter frolics may
soon be expected among the "bright eyes" and
lovers of sweet cider Thrashing is going on at
a great rate with some farmers, who are no "doubt
determined to make a clear track for their chil
dren to attend school at the proper time. The va
rious occupations of the people along the route
unite in one common song of industry.
What was most pleasing, however, was the good
and sociable character of the ladies, (hod bless
them, says Plnenix, so say I,) to spend one even
ing with whom, could not be compensated by m

our "better-halves" over here may think of this
will perhaps yet be realized 'Sposc I had better
