Fatal Accident.-On Friday morning a
week, George Miller, of this county, an
employee at tlie Hunter's Dale Mills, on
the iiuow Shoe railroad, met with a terri
ble c--ident which resulted in his death.
He was engaged, we learn from the Belie
fonte Press, in sawing slabs into a length
suitable Svr plastering lath, when, by a
slip of his foot, lie was thrown upon the
circular which cut oll'his left leg and
arm, and so badly injuring his rightarm,
or wrist , as to make amputation necessa
ry. Drs. Potter and Dobbins arrived aboat
4 o'clock in the afternoon; but too late to
save his life. We understand he had been
a soldier, and after having passed the ter
rible ordeal of a bloody war, he met his
death by mangling such as he suffered.
His remains were taken to his home.
Accidents.— Joseph Auner met with a
severe tail on Thursday evening last at
Glamorgan furnace, his recovery from
which is problematical He was cleaning
a flue, and while engaged in it he inhaled
a quantity of gas, causing him to jump or
fill from thereof, 18or20 feet high, striking
the ground with his head. He was re
moved to his father's residence, and med
ical attendance procured, which has done
all to relieve him it was possible to do.
Thomas and Wm. Reed, while riding
in a buggy last week in Derrv township,
were thrown out in their efforts to keep
out of the road of a runaway team with a
load of fodder attached which wascoming
towards them. The line was caught iu
passing, and wheeling the hor>e round
suddenly, broke the tongue, throwing
lx>th out, though without serious injury.
Miss Susan Davis, employed at Dr.
Martin's, was severely bun it on Thursday
last by some alcoholic preparation ignit
ing on top of the stove. Her arm and
face were more or less burnt, and her eye
brows and hair singed.
Daniel Herringtou of Granville town
ship, while returning from a visit to a
son in the west fell bet ween the bumpers
of a train on the Ohio and Mississippi
Railroad, at Bridgeport, Illinois, on the
28th February, and died frem his injuries
a few days thereafter.
Bounty Funds.—Considerable difficulty
soenis to exist in several townships re
specting the settlement of Bounty Ac
counts. In some districts the supervisors
or other parties levying the taxes under
! the provisions of the Act of Assembly
; adjusted the accounts and published them.
On the other hand it is contended that all
j ought to lie settled by the township audi
; tors, which in some eases would probably
j be a difficult matter, as circumstances and
vouchers then fresh in memory andsatis
j factory, might not be so now, especially
il audited by those who were opposed to,
or at best lukewarm friends of, the vari
' ous modes adopted to escape drafts. The
act of 18GG, (which, by the by, had our
wiseaeresof the legislature long ago passed
a law to publish all such as soon as passed
and approved in the newspapers over the
State, the people would have known
something concerning it, as well as many
others in which they are interested,) di
rects the Auditors to settle such ac
counts, and publish thesameiu two news
papers for three weeks.
Shad on their way Up. —Thomas Mulli
nix, of Snake Spring township, caught a
shad at Hartley's Spring Run, about six
miles below Bedford, on Wednesday of
last week. This is the first shad that has
been caught in the Raystown Branch of
the Juniata since the completing of the
| canal. So much for the bill passed last
winter to remove the obstructions in the
Susquehanna and its tributaries.—Bed
The Bedford Gazette also notices this
singular fact, so that no doubt need be en
tertained of its truth. A paper published
we think at Wrightsville volunteered the
statement lately that no shad had passed
the Columbia dam, and that other fish
were no more plentiful than usual above
it, and we were in hopes some such occur
rence would justify our assertion a mouth
or so ago, though we must confess we did j
not look for a substantiation sixty or more
miles above Lewistown. There is no
doubt at all shad and other migrating fish
would ascend our river if the dams were
properly altered, just as they did before
the dams were constructed.
How it Works. —The effects of a total
prohibition of the sale of liquor are already
visible in this place. Eighteen kegs of
lager beer and a half-barrel of ale were
sold on a single evening last week —Sat-
Like most people we cannot understand
the above; but on the whole it works well,
for although a few seem to obtain liquor
surreptitiously, the remarkable quietness
anil order pervading our streetsshow that
if our Judges would only license the bet- !
ter class of taverns, and throw aside all
mere grog shops, there would be less
drunkenness, less disorder, less crime, and
less misery. In this respect the real hotel 1
keepers are as much interested as any one, .
for if a change for the better will not soon
take place, all will be swept out of exis- j

is but justice to say tnat the judgment thus pronounced
