TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE
There is a habit which boys teach each other at the
Academy or College—a habit indulged in when by him
self, in solitmk, growing up with the boy to manhood;
few of those who indulge in this pernicious practice ure
aware of the consequences until they find the nervous
system shattered, feel strange and unaccountable feel
ings, vague fears in the mind. The individual becomes
feeble, he is unable to labor with accustomed vigor, or
to apply bis mind to study ; bis step is tardy and weak,
lie is dull irresolute.
Persons of ail ages can now judge what is the cause of
their declining liealtn, losing tin ir vigor, becoming weak,
! pale and emaciated.
Let no false modesty deter yon from making your case
known to one who, from educate n and respectability,
can alone befri id you. He who places himself under
Dr. Kinkelin's treatment, may religiously confide in his
honor us a gentleman, and in win e bosom will be for
ever locked the secret of the patient.

Wagons anJ Carls.
J A farmer in England, named Edward B. Lidd- !

i should arrest the attention of our farmers; for i

j After five years' experience with wagons, and ;
; nearly the same with one horse carts, on a farm '
of one hundred and seventy acres of arable and 1
eighty acres oi pasture, he came to the conclu- j
sion that the carts were of the greatest advan
tage. As our farmers all use wagons, let them
| pay some attention to his statement, fie sajs : j
j " 1 have no light ploughed land, nor had I more '
, than twenty or thirty acres of very heavy land, j
1 will, therefore, relate my actual experience, j
In the employment of wagons and the old broad- j
i wheeled dung-carts, I required one wagon, one :
cart, and three horses to every fifty acres of i
: arable land. I also kept a light cart for general
purposes. Now that 1 am employing carts, I
| tind that I get through my work much more ea- j
silv with two horses and two carts to fifty acres." |
In the calculation of items, his saving was ;
| nearly four dollars on the cultivation of one
acre, in the year. Again he says, it is admit
ted that one horse attached to a given weight, 1
will move it more easily than two horses attach
ed to double that weight. This arises not only
from the advantage gained by having all the
power of draught close to the work, but also
all the power applied at the same moment, j
which is almost impossible where two or more
j horses, having different wills and steps, are at
itached to the weight; and for the same reason
one horse will travel more quickly.
When a cart is filled there is no delay in at
taching the trace-horses, during which operation
j one horse would be two hundred yards on the
road. 1 know this might be done more quickly
by having men ready to change the horses, as in
j the practice of opposition coaches, but 1 am
j speaking of the matter-of-fact working of the
system. Then again, when the load is deposit
ed, the one horse turns in much less time than
the two or three. These facts are too self-evi
dent to admit of the contradiction; indeed, 1
believe the economy of carting manure with one
horse carts is generally allowed, but the em
ployment of them in harvesting is much object- •
cd to. In this respect, however, I find them :
equally expeditious and economical. Mv actu
al experience is, that Ihree carts, with the har
vest frames attached, will convey as much hay j
or corn in the straw as two wagons, and that
they are bound with the ropes in the same time ;
thciel'ore no time is lost in binding. They aro
easier to pitch into than u agons, and not more
difficult to unload; and all the advantages are
gained of speed in travelling.
My attention was first drawn seriously to the j
subject from hiring a man to draw some stones
I for draining, lie came with a horse only four- I
teen hands high, and a small eart, when the
| work he accomplished so surprised me that 1
at once decided to try two light carts, which :
after succeeding well in all other operations, 1 |
employed in the harvest field ; and being fully '
■ satisfied with them in this capacity, 1 soon dis- J
I carded every wagon from the farm.
MELANCHOLY AFFAIR. —On last Thursday
evening a ntan by the name ofLoucks, who was
several times in the Lunatic Asylum, was seen
riding at full speed down Main street, with a
ritle in his hand. When he came to the resi
dence of Maj. George Hay, he shot in the win
dow; fortunately no one was in the room. After
committing this deed, he continued his course
down Main street, through Boitstown, at a rate
which defied all pursuit. Several of our citi
zens procured horses and went in pursuit of hint.
He having taken the Carlisle road, two men
mounted on one horse, took that direction, and
three utiles from town they caught up with
Loucks—he turned around and told them to
come on, that he would not hurt thetn. When
they were within about 20 feet of him, he raised
his ritle and shot down the foremost one. The
other seated behind the one shot, jumped into
the saddle and rode towards York to give the
alarm and procure medical aid. Some persons
in the neighborhood seeing the affair, came to
the assistance of the wounded man, but it was
of no avail, as he died shortly after. The de
ceased, Henry llgenfritz, son of John Ilgcnfritz.
was a young man, and a resident of York. He
was married only about a year. Loucks was
pursued and taken by Mr. Alburtus Welsh and
David Eberhart, several miles above Dover, and
brought to York. He is now safely lodged in
jail. It appears that Maj. George Hay assisted
several times to take Loucks to the Lunatic
Asylum, and that in consequence ]when in a fit
of insanity, he always expressed a desire to be
revenged.— York Advocate.
SERIOUS DISASTER. —During the evening of
the 27th itist., the river batik at Morganza, in

A \ ANKER BOY IN- CALIFORNIA. —We were
much amused at hearing of the real grit evin
j ced by a Salem boy in the Gold Region. He
! is a mere lad of eighteen years of age, on board
of one of the vessels which arrived early at
! San Francisco, and having Muck hy the ship, is
j receiving, as he says, seventy-five dollars a
i month for doing nothing. He had been there
about six weeks, and in that time he had made
one hundred and seventy-five dollars besides
his wages. He and another lad picked up the
I boxes which had been cast aside as useless after
. the goods had been sold from them, and dis
i posed of them for four or five dollars a piece,
; realizing some seventy-five dollars. Being
quite an ingenious lad, he could turn his hand
j to almost anything; and as there were no paint
i ers there, and two signs were wanted, he un
| dertook the job. lie simply printed on canvass,
the words " American House," and " Boarding
j House," and received therefor the moderate
. sum of twenty-two dollars —a pretty good day's
work. Another day he earned seventeen dol
i lars, and another fifteen, for similar trifles.—-
; That boy is surely bound to succeed.— Salem
ECI.ESIASTICAL. —The Rev. Robert Gracy,
has resigned the pastoral charge of the Associ
ate Reformed Congregation in this place.
Rev. James C. Watson, L>. D., who, for some
l. r > years, has labored in the pastoral charge of
the Presbyterian Churches at Gettysburg and

THE JENNINGS' ESTATE. —We now and then
hear of doings relative to the recovery of enor
mous estates in England by descendants of Lie
; original owners now resident in this country ;
' but we never have heard that—in spite of ail
the endeavors made—any portion of the claimed
! estates were recovered. Reeently there was a
perfect crowd of descendants gathered in one
of the Eastern cities to take measures to pos
sess themselves of sundry millions to which
| they thought themselves entitled ; and now we
find that, on the 15th instant, there was a con
siderable meeting in Nashville of the kin of one
William Jenning, who died in England in 178A,
leaving an estate of §40,000,0QU, to take prelim
j inary steps for the prosecution of their claims
Ito the estate before the Courts of England. It
; is hard to tell what will be the result—but not
so hard to foresee that there will be great difli
culty before the present possessors of the fc-10,-
! 000,000 will be compelled to disgorge it.
DREADFUL OCCURRENCE—A correspondent of
the Baltimore Sun states that the Rev. James
Nichols, of Caroline county, Md., who has for
a long time been laboring under an aberration
of mind, on Thursday last, shot dead Miss Ju
liet Nichols. She and several of the family
j were put up stairs at the usual lime of Mr. N.
holding family prayer, when lie summoned them
to his room. Upon the unfortunate lady open
ing the door, Nichols levelled a gun at her and
shot her dead. He then in his murderous in
i sanity, dragged her out of the house some dis
tance to a hoc pen, and attempted to throw her
into it. Failing to do ibis, lie fled, and has not
since been heard of.
CURE FOR DTSENTK'RT. —We are informed
that a medical gentleman, of high standing in
his profession, invariably prescribes ice, and ice
only, for his patients, in dysentery, and in most
j cases with success. The ice is to be pounded
; small enough to swallow it, and the patient is to
sw allow a small quantity of it every three or
j four minutes, until the disease ceases. Three
j or four instances have conic within our own
. knowledge in which violent cases of dysentery
- have been cured within the course of a siuglo
I day by this remedy.—,V. I*. Com. Jour.
FIRE. —We are sorry to learn that, on Sunday
morning last, the Grist Mill and Saw Mil! o'f
Jacob StoufTer, situated on Shearman's creek,
in Carrol township, were totally consumed by
fire, which is supposed to have been the work
of an incendiary. The properties were insured
by the Perry County Mutual Fire Insurance Com
pany to the amount of about $1260 00, which
sum will not cover half the toss sustained, in the
opinion of Mr. Stoufier.— Pcmj Frttman.
NAVICATIN-O THE AIR. —Mr. Pennington, the
original projector of a flying machine to navi
gate the air, has returned from the far west,
where he has been making some experiments on
the great prairies ; but wc regret to say he has
not been sufficiently successful to enable him to
come back in his own carriage. He is, howev
er, sanguine of fully succeeding eventually in
making a voyage to California or even Europe
in his car through the air.
FIRE AND BlßDS. —During the fire at Williams
burg, N. V., on Friday night, about 800 canary
birds were let loose "from an aviary that was
burned. They seemed fascinated by the flames
and hovered above them, many falling in at
last and perishing.
The Williamsport and Elmira Railroad,
which has for some time been advertised to he
sold, was struck ofl'on Monday at the Merchants'
Exchange, Philadelphia, to Archibald Robert
son, Esq., for one thousand dollars.
The Editor of the Rockville (Md.) Journal
speaks of the finest peach he has ever seen,
taken from the orchard of Win. Huddlestone,
Esq., on the old Washington road. It tctiglis
over one pound.
The number of houses, exclusive of barns,
destroyed by the fire at Owego, on Thursday,
is computed at one hundred and four. The
loss is said to be over half a million of dollars.
SQUIRREL HI NT.—A grand squirrel hunt, com
