Dan Rice's Great Show, —The popular
wit and clever gentleman, Dan Rice, an
nounces iu our advertising columns to
day, that he will pitch his tent among us
on Saturday, the 27th inst., and aided by
many of the greatest "Stars" of the arena,
and his really wonderful School of Sacred
and Trained Animals, give a fareweil en
tertainment. He positively promises to
signalize his last appearance by assuming
for tbe first time in several years, his un
approachable role of Clown. This is sug
gestive of an oratorical and mirtli pro
voking treat that needs no aid of ours to
irresistabiy attract. Mr. Rice will exhibit
arid lecture U|H)U his beautiful and rare
herd of Sacred Cattle—the only ones of
their interesting species iu the civilized
world. He will also introduce his mar
vel of equine sagacity—tbe blind talking
i.orse Excelsior, Jr.; the magnificent
tuorobre I trick horse Stephen A. Doug
las, the immensely funny clown mules
Pete and Barney, and a whole troupe of
equestrian monkeys. We are assured that
nothing in the least improper, or offensive
1 > the most sensitive, will be tolerated, and
ii#ok to see the great representative of
American humor receive a hearty greeting.
Hog 3, &c. —We notice bills posted up
by the High Constable requiring hogs,
horses, mules, and sheep to be penned up
by the 20th April. Our streets generally
are in good condition, hut a number of
alleys never were in worse. Of these the
one leading from Main to Brown streets
is almost impassable to vehicles, it being
in some places completely blockaded with
coal ashes, manure, rubbish, the trim
mings of rose bushes, Ac. No notice of
removal ought to be given in such cases,
out the ordinances at once enforced, pre
cisely in the same way as if a street would
be obstructed.
Money Lost or Stolen. —N. J. Rudisill Inst
week lost or was robbed of about §IOO on
the ears between Philadelphia and Down
ingtown. He had been purchasing some
good*, and on returning very injudicious
ly counted what money he had left while
seated in the curs. Although he supposes
no one saw him, there is little doubt one
of the numerous pickpockets always 011
the lookout saw it in his possession some
where, and made a "spec." Moral—Never
eount in public or show any considerable
sum of money away from home.
The Gcllectorship.—Johnson still contin
ues the farce of nominating candidates
for the colieetorship of this district —( Jen.
John Boss having last week been nomi
nated and rejected, and since then Edward
Roberts has been brought on the carpet
for senatorial examination. There was
no reason in the first place for removing
.Mr. Rover, a faithful, resjwmsible and ef
ficient officer, and as the Senate is now
assert ing its undoubted prerogative of i -
ing a part of the ap|>oiiiting j>o\ver, we
trust it will reject all the time-serving
politicians who may now lie offered un
til he is restored, or leave the office in
statu quo.
The Childien's Jubiiee, held in the Presby
terian church on Sunday afternoon last,
was the largest gathering of the kind ever
assembled in Lewistown. Not less than
seven hundred Sunday School scholars
made the edifice resound with merry peals
of song, going up like the shout of a great
army inarching to victory, which was
taken up by a veteran corps of officers,
teachers, and friends of the cause, num
bering several hundred more. Rev. Ed
win M. Long, of Philadelphia, delivered
a children's sermon on Hiding Places, il
lustrated by large paintings. After other
interesting exercises the audience dispers
ed, satisfied more fully than before per
haps, that such fraternity is promotive of
much good to the work of love in which
they arc engaged.
Who Would Not be Beautiful''—All may

baster whiteness, hv the use of CHASTEL

all impurities of the skin, and unlike all

Jewelry and other Gifts. —We have long
since refused to publish advertisements
from New York and other cities, offering
extraordinary inducements forsmall risks;
and we would impress it upon our read
ers to set down all concerns professing to
furnish millions worth of jewelry or other
articles for hundreds of thousands, as
humbugs and swindlers.

will hold their next temperance meeting i
in the Town Hall on Thursday evening,

ers have been invited.
The Weather, Crops, &c. —We have had i
some weeks of very pleasant weather, and
the fanners generally have been making
up for lost time in March. On Tuesday
morning a warm rain set in, which has
given a strong forward growth to vegeta- j
tion of all kinds, and if not followed by
frosts gives promise of an abundant yield.
The grain crop looks remarkably well.
evening of the 4th Mr. William Extine, I
of Patterson, was fatally injured by being
thrown from a hand car. The Mitliin
town Sentinel says that Mr. Extine, in
company with two or three others, was
returning from his work on a hand ear
and while in the act of adjusting an oil
can to keep it from falling off, was caught
by the crank or lever and thrown in front
of the ear, which run on to him, doubling
hi in up under it and causing internal in
juries, from which he died on Saturday
ANOTHER. —On Monday a week an old i
man, name unknown, was run over and
killed in tiie Narrows above Patterson,
by one of tbe trains passing along. He
had in his possession a goose, picked aud
cleaned ready for cooking, and it is sup
{>osed he was traveling and foraging as he
went along.

Destructive Fire in Mwrmstovvn.
'1 he Bellefonte Press gives the particu
lars of a fire that occurred in Stormstown,
011 Sunday afternoon a week, which, in
the amount ot distress etui set 1 by any sim
ilar misfortune in Centre county, is
without parallel in this region. The
larger port ion of the town, and that which
constituted the business part of it, inclu
ding the best buildings, the hotels, stores,
shops, &c., is now a mass of unsightly
ruins. Only two or three individuals had
effected an insurance and that indeed was
but slight. Mr. Lever's policy had ex
pired but a few days before, but unfortu
nately he was ignorant of the fact. The
insurance companies interested are the
Lycoming Mutual, and the Clinton and
C<-litre Farmers' and Mechanics' Mutual.
The lire originated in the garret of the
hotel property owned by George Mat tern,
a part of which building was occupied by
M. & G. Gray as a dry good store. The
town was built along both sides of the
street running very nearly due East and
West, and while it is remembered that a
high west wind prevailed at the time,
amounting almost to a tornado, the com
plete havoc made by the fire will not be a
matter of sm prise." Annexed is a list of

is but justice to say tnat the judgment thus pronounced
has not been overruled by the musical world.
Still, by the improvements lately applied by them
