DROWSED.—Mr. HIRAM GEIGER, formerly a j
contractor on Section 61 of the Pennsylvania j
Railroad, was drowned in the Juniata about i
four miles above this place on Friday evening j
of last week. A number of persons had gone '
into the river to bathe, and Mr. G., being at. i
• xpert swimmer, ventured into deep water,
where it is supposed he was seized with cramp, !
r.nd probably without a cry sank to rise no more
with life. He was not missed until the persons
who had been in were dressed, w hen his cloth
ing on the river bank attracted their attention.
Search was immediately made, but bis body
was net recovered until the follow ing morning.
His remains, accompanied by a bereaved wife
and child, were taken to Perry county for intcr-

THE FOURTH. —TBO anniversary of OUR In
dependence passed oil without any public cel
ebration at this place. Pic nice and family
parties were dotted over various sections of
the country, mostly along the river L inks, and
doubtless enjoyed n dav c\ pleasant recreation,
tree from the excitements caused by liquors
and overheated partisanship.
The EPISCOPAL SUNDAY SCHOOL assembled
at the Church about 7 o'clock in the morning,
and after some appropriate exercises proceeded
to the public square, where several National
Airs were sung. Accompanied by a consider
able number of ladies and gentlemen, ("friends,
princ : pally, of the children) wlio swelled the
number to upwards of two hundred, they then
took their seats on a large flat, which had been
fitted np for the occasion, and, enlivened by
the cheerful notes of vocal music, were towed
up the rivor to Granville, lioro the children
at once scattered to every species of amuse
ment, and continued to enjoy themselves uutil
the teachers had stored a table, sufficiently
largo to seat them all, with n sumptuous en
tertainment. They then again, with renewed
zeal, sought their amusements. Supper was
provided between four and five o'ciock, after
which preparations w ere made for returning.
A little before six, the parly embarked and
proceeded down the river, singing national
airs, songs, &.c. nearly the whole distance.
During the homeward trip, a large paper bal
loon, decorated by two flags, made a beautiful
ascension, and finally descended into tlie river
not tar from the spot whence it was sent up.
At the landing the scholarsand teachers again
formed in procession and proceeded to Market
street, where, after singing some airs selected
for that purpose, they were dismissed.
The day was remarkably pleasant, and but
little occurred to mar the enjoyments of the
children. To them it was a gala dav, and
will doubtless long be remembered as euch.
It is due to the COMMITTEE OF LADIES, who
superintended the arrangements, to Messrs.
JOIIN 1. MCCOY and E. ALLEN, (both of whom
are ever ready to devise and carry out schemes
for the rational amusement of their youthful
friends,) and probably some others, to say tint
everything connected with this pleasant excur
sion was arranged in the very best manner,
and that it will be owing in great part lo their
untiring perseverance that the children of the
Episcopal Sunday School will look forward to
the return of our natal day of freedom with
elated hearts, and in alter life remember those
days as greenest among the green spots ul

Here, says the Telegraph, is a lamentable
picture of I Aicofuco prodigality and abuse. In
the short space o f eighty-three days the Loco
foco officers on the public works have drawn
from the State Treasury the astounding sum
of more than THREE HUNDRED THOU
SAND DOLLARS—or THREE THOU
SAND SIX HUNDRED AND EIGHTY
DOLLARS PER DAY—while at the same
time the Locofoco press is filled with abuse ot
the State Treasurer because he will not fur
nish the officers with money to pay the labor
ers on tiie public works !!!
'i'his lact dicloses a scheme cf villainy un
paralleled, we believe, in the history of Loco
foco ism in this State. The sum of $300,090,
formerly was all that was annually appropria
ted for the ordinary repairs of the State canal
and railroads. This sum was for a whole
litis amount has already been drawn from
the Treasury for that pur|ose in a little o\> r
two months I What has been done with it 1
thut is tiie question. Have the laborers been
paid I The Licofo-o press says they have not!
Have the public officers been using this mon
ey, and teiimg the honest laborers that they
could get no money, while they have drawn
the enormous sum of nearly one-third of a mil
lion 1 If the I/icofoco press tell the truth, it
is so. If it is not so, then they have been con-
I cocting and circulating the most enormous lies,
j and wjth the concurrence, too, of the officers
I on the public works, otherwise they would vol*
i untarily disabuse the public mind. One of
| two things are, therefore, self-evident,and can
not be controverted : either the I.ocofoco offi
■ cers have paid the laborers on the public
works, while they have given curieacy to a
ule and infamous libel upon the Slate Treasu
rer; or they have used the money drawn from
; the tatate Treasury for pur[>oses of speculation;
and to screen themselves from the just censure
of those from whom they are fraudulently with
holding their just dues, have put into circula
tion a falsehood against the State Treasurer.—
j hither uoni of the dilemma will hold them up
to public anathema and indignation,
i It will not lie contended by the most hard
: cried and unscrupulous Locofoco plunderer,
i that the sum ofTUEE HUNDRED THOU
SAND DOLLARS IN EIGHTY-THREE
j DAYS, OR THREE THOUSAND SIX HUN
DRED AND EKiU'IY DOLLARS I'KR
DAY, is not sufficient to meet all expenses and
pay all the laborers on the public work.-! No
I °ne w ill pretend that one-third of that amount
has been expended within the time; and if the
■ " poor laborers" have not been paid.and prompt
ly too, there is gross fraud. The sum ofSdM) -

j Treasury, on account of ordinary repairs, in
j the snme time, nor can it have been required.
