FBIDAY EVENING, DEO. 31, 1880.

District Attorney Ans ett, of North
ampton county, finds him elf very much
embarrassed in the discba geef the duty
upon him te bring te justice the lynchers
of the murderer Snyder. He declares
that he is the only man in his
county who wants te punish them,
and lets it appear plainly enough
that he only desires te de se be
cause he recognizes it as his sworn duty.
Mr. Anstett does net attempt te shirk
his duty, but if public sentiment is as he
says, Iiis position is certainly an unenvi
ble one. Yet if he is a strong man he will
find his account in it. It is the place for a
strong man. The duty imposed upon
him i3 as plain as the public sentiment
that fails te support him in it. Of
course, it is very disgraceful te the
people that they should se unanimously
defy the law. It proves that they are
net acting under a calm judgment. The
course which they urtreupen Mr. Anstett
new is oae which will work his con
demnation, even in their own eyes, but
a little while hence. If lie does as they
would have him, they will despise him
then as heartily ;is they would applaud
him new. There is absolutely no course
for a public eflicer te pursue,te maintain
his geed name and establish his fame,
but te firmly and fearlessly discharge his
duty under all circumstances; and the
greater the obstacles put in his way the
greater the credit which must come te
him in overcoming them.
Mr. Ah?tetts fellow citizens are mad.
He admits that he lest his head when
he looked uikmi the brutal work of the
murderers and asked the crowd why they
had net put a pile of laths, that he saw
lying nearby, under the suspended mur
derer and se burned him te death. "We
cannot wonder that a district attorney,
who was se exciU'd as te make
such a suggestion, should find himself
embarrassed in prosecuting his neghbers
and friends, who in a similar transport,
had taken Snyder's life ; esiiecially when
among these abetting the crime by his
presence was the district attorney's own
father. Te prosecute him would re
quire a Ileman virtue, which it is fair
te admit that most men would net dis
play. Te bring te the bar of justice
relative and friends, and te defy
existing public sentiment in doing
it, calls for a strength which very few
law officers would display. Yet we hope
te s :3 Mr. An.stett equal te the occasion.
We trust that he will net let the people
of his county escape the responsibility
of dealing with this awful crime. If
lynching is te be sanctioned and con
done.! in Northampton, let it be com
mitted ti its grand jury te say se. The
pi?secutig officer's duty is se plainly te
bring it te their judgment, that he can-
net defend himself in failing te de se.
Judging from the tone of the Easten
papers, the people- of Northampton are
nei in a seutni mum. xney really tin
4 i .1 t.i , , . . ,
l te claim that the lynching is suf-
y defended by the fact that Lares
escaped the gallows en the ground of in
sanity and that Bortree is imprisoned
twelve years instead of being hung.
Their plea amounts te a declaration
that they cannot trust the juries of their
county te de justice te a murderer
and therefore it is right te lynch him.
Men who can deliberately make such a
declaration are evidently net in a frame
of mind te be governed by leasen. The
Aryits even assails the Intelligencer
for suggesting the possibility that the
wretch Snyder was insane ; as though
it was a wicked thing te suspect
the possibility that a causeless murder
might have btvii an act of insanity. Te
a reasonable mind it will certainly
clearly appear, en the contrary, tbat the
question of the sanity of an offender is
one te be considered first in every crime ;
for the law and geed sense declare that
one who is insane cannot be a criminal.
It seemingly appears te the present mind
of the Northampton people that
insanity is a crime a degree or
two worse than murder itself. They
refuse te consider it at all
Whether Snvder was sane
as a defense.
or insane it
was due te justice te have determined be
fore he was punished for the killing
which he confessed that he had done. Ne
reasonable man outside of Northampton
county will deny that: what that remark
able ieeple won't deny it is impossible te
say. They say and de strange things,and
think nothing of them ; they take board
ers, for instance, into their houses, and
permit them te criminally assail their
daughters ; and don't put them out, br
cause they own a beard bill.
The Old Year.
The carefully compiled, complete and
accurate records which we publish of
general and local events occurring dur
ing the closing year, will be found of in
terest te recall the matters thus epitem.
ized and te present the whole year at
one view, and of value for future refer
ence. It will be seen that the year has
net been a verv eventful one. During
one half of it, public interest in this
country was absorbed wilh political agi
tation te the disturbance of business and
the detriment of public morals. Abroad
the chief subject of general interest has
been the condition of political affairs in
England,first signalized by the revolution
in the ascendent parly, and new by the
troubles in Ireland, which are culminat
ing at the close of the year, and premise
te make the next er.c big with interest.
The agitation of the Nihilists in Russia,
and the mutlerings of the Socialists in
Germany continue and are only aggra
vated by the kind of efforts made te sup
press them. There have been wars and
rumors of wars en the outskirts of civil
ization; but, en the whole, the year has
been a singularly quiet one among the
great nations whose armed peace pre
serves the balance of power.
Of miner events it will be seen that
there were the usual series of
accidents en laud and sea, col
liery disasters and shipwrecks, and
a very unusual number of heavy losses
by fire, heemg that people mast die,
and a geed many of them every year,
the necrolegical list for 1SS0 is net strik-
r-j - - -t, ..v... uiiu "illi:

notable features of the list are the targe
proportion it includes of -these who have
contributed te the amusement and en
tertainment of the public, and the un
usual number of distinguished women
who have been stricken from the roll of
the living. These suggestions readily
recall the decease of Adelaide Xeilsen,
Mrs. Chas.Keau and Nina Varian, ac
tresses ; of Ole Bull, the great violinist,
and Offenbach the composer; of Geerge
Eliet, Lydia Maria Child, Lucretia
Mett, Geerge Ripley and Estelle Ann
Lewis, of greater or less literary fame ;
or Dr. Kenealy, who became notorious
in the Tichborne case and Chief Justice
Cockburn ; of Revs. Dr. "Wm. Adams
and Dr.E. H. Chapin, eminent in theol
ogy in our own country ; of S. R. Gif
ford, one of our most talented artists,
and of Worthington, the hydraulic en
gineer ; of Julius Favre, the French
publicist, and of ex-Gov. Williams, of
Indiana. The ranks of public men in
our own immediate commonwealth have
been diminished by the decrease of David
Landreth, Andrew Hepkins, Gen. Hec Hec
eor Tyndall, Jehn Siney, Ximred Strick
land, ex-Gov. "Wm. Bigler, Lin Barthol Barthel Barthol
omew, Gen. C. G. Albright, Hen. Jehn
Rewe and ethers of local fame.
The incidents of our own town and
county life are fresh in the minds of our
readers te whom the Intelligencer
has brought its daily budget, of which
a meagre resume only of leading events
can be given. This will be conned with
attention, however, and with mingled
feelings of sorrow, or joy, accordingly as
the events ware of gladsome or of
mournful interest. On the whole the
year has net been a bad one. We dismiss
it with a blessing and bid the successor,
whose feet is at the deer, a welcome that
is net without misgivings as te whether
1881 can improve en the year at whose
death-bed the new heir of time is the
least sorry mourner.

FROZEN TO UEATH
The Tragic Side or the Celd Snap. -
There was a slight rise in temperature
in the northwest yesterday ; but the mark
ings generally remained below zero.
Throughout the Middle and Southern
states the cold was intense, the tempera
tures ia the Middle states ranging from 4
22 degress below zero, according te locali
ty, and in the Seuth Atlantic and Gulf
states from 10 te 2S degrees below the
freezing point. At New Orleans yester

22 degrees, and in Jacksonville, Flerida,
lC te 23 degrees.
Jame& Jehnsen, an aged colored man,
was found frozen te death near Atlee's
station, nine miles from Richmond, en the
Chesapeake & Ohie railroad. A faithful
deg was found en his body and had te be
removed by force.
A warrant has becii issued charging
Mi-a Mary Grever, the young lady who
placed her baby en a vacant let in St.
Leuis last Sunday night, where it froze te
death, with murder in the first degree.
The warrant has net been served yet, Miss
Grever being still cenliuel te her bed by
sickness, but it will be as seen as she is
well enough te be moved.
The man, at the time unrecognized, who
was drowned by breaking through the ice
en the Hudsen river, was James Burns, a
resident of Rondout. N. Y. The body
has net yet been recovered.
A mounted letter-carrier, Fred Ceuriel,

end of his journey and was discovered
some hours afterward, almost lifeless.
Numerous cases of persons having been

Jacksonville, Fla., is having the coldest
weather experienced since 1S58. The ther
mometer was 19 degrees above zero. The
oranges en the trees aie frozen, and it is
feared that the fruit up the rher is badly
damaged. About euc-thiid of the crop

despatch from Sumpter county says the
erance trees rie net injured. That coun
ty is about 110 miles south of Jacksonville.
In Charleston S. C. the temperature
yesterday was lower than it has been j.inee

front t;ivc the minimum as twelve degrees.
In 183.1 the lowest point reached was nine
degrees above zero. In 1871 the lowest
temperature was nineteen degrees, which
up te this time, was the lowest point .since

New Year's and its Opportunity.
New Yerk Independent.
It is well, that the season of geed resolu
tions comes round again, and that its cus
toms should be observed. Though re
solves te live better and mere unselfish
lives are se often broken, it is well, never
theless, that they should be made, it is
better te have geed intentions for one hour
than net te have them at all. There is no
man who is net better for pure, unselfish
resolves, however brief they may be.
Many a piotligale will premise himself,
with the advent of the New Year, te live a
cleaner, less sensual life for the future,
just as profligates have been doing every
year that is just. Seme, we have no doubt
will keep the premise, and become helps, net
hindcrancesjin society. Many will. seen for
get, perchance, in the maducss of the cap,
their rcsielve te reform. But it is some
thing te have rca'hed their degraded con
dition, and te have sighed for escape from
it. The lew weeks in which they have
been true te themselves will prove te be a
blessed interregnum in the sway of the
tyrant; an interval, charged with picas in t
memories, whose sweetness may linger
and yet work out salvation.
It is geed that there is a time for mak
ing resolutions of reform The prc.teut is
always the best time ; but if New Year re
minds these who have no thought of leav
ing off bad habits at any ether time that
they ought te mend their ways, let us
strive te perpetuate these associations. 1
The reason se many premise te 'turn'
evcra new leai witu tue acw lear
is because they de net want a bid
and a geed record mixed en the
same page. They desire that the whole
year should be clean, and net a part bad
aud a part geed. Ne man is irre
trievably lest who is capable of a thought
like this, a desire for a pure life ; and when
he puts out his feet te take a new path, lei
all who knew him help htm. Strive te
deepen liis.dcsire te live a clean, manly
life. It is selfishness whi-jh corrodes our
nature, blunts our moral perceptions, and
quenches our purest aspirations. Help
men out of the slough of selfishness.
Many who are net controlled by tiie ap
petite for strong drink need te resolve te
escape from ether selfish indulgences.
There may be little hope that the set who
is capable of geed resolutions will keep
them ; but oilier forms of selfishness are

That men have their little weaknesses is
amply exemplified along Chestnut street
any pleasant afternoon. Net an afternoon
like te-day, for in stormy weather most
men with their little weaknesses re
main indoors. The weak points
show . themselves in various ways.
Almest every morning a prominent
gentleman can be seen walking down
te his business, his caue in his hand,
which he seems te be swinging in an al
most unconscious way, new and then let
ting it strike the pavement. Keep your
gaze upon him, however, and you will find
that he passes no piece of nut-shell or lit

cane. If he misses it the first time he
will go back and touch it in such
a way, however, that a casual observer
would net notice him. The habit has

The men who can't pass a lamp-pest with

don't, however, walk up te them and

a careless sort of way, as they pass along,

itself seems insignificant, and yet these

The beard of trustees of the state luna
tic hospital held a regular meeting in
Hariisburg yesterday te consider current
business and elect a superintendent of the
institution in room of Dr. Curwcn, whose
third term of ten years expires early in
the new year. Three of the trustees
were absent Dr. Green, of Easten, Mr.
Ileury Gilbert, who is confined te his
bed by sickness, and Mr. R. A. Lamber Lamber
ten, whose mother is lying dead in Car
lisle. After the beard had assembled, a
formal resolution appointing Dr. J. Z.
Gerhard superintendent of the hospital,
his term te eenimencerJu the expiration of
Dr. Curwcu's time, was offered and unan
imously agreed te. There was no consul
tation or debate, and Dr. Curwcu was net
present. The Uarrisburg TekgrapJi has
the following well-merited netice of Dr.
Gerhard, who is a graduate of F. & M.
college of this city, and a son of our
townsman Rev. W. T. Gerhard :
"Dr. J. 1J. Gerhard, the superintendent-
elect, has been the first assistant at the
hospital during the past eleven years. He
studied medicine with Dr. Atlce, of Lan
caster, one of the trustees, and is a gradu
ate of one of the Philadelphia medical
school-:. He began his practice of medi
cine in Lancaster, where he was engaged
when called te the position of assistant
at the hospital about eleven years
age. lie has visited Europe, aud
made a thorough investigation of the
insane hospital in England aud en
the continent, and during Dr. Curweu's
absence has had charge of the institution
of which by te-day's action he becomes
the superintendent. His qualification for
the position is unquestioned. Several
years since, when a superinteudant was te
