AI.MOHT A RAILROAD II OK no ll.—One
evening I nut wni'k, tho mail truiii from
Look Haven, due here lit 5.06 I\ M., WII*
stopped near Howard by it wrecked freight
train. Finding that it would be imposai
ble to clear the trHck of the f ieOrin and open
a passage for the delayed train that night,
the conductor telegraphed to Tyrone for a
J special train to come to his relief and
i bring his passengers to Rellofonte. The
special was promptly dispatched from Ty
rone to the scone of the disaster, in the
meantime the Snow Shoerain was lying
on the siding here nwaiting instructions to
move. They soon came in the shape of
orders to go right through to the Intersec
tion. The Snow Shoe arrived at Miles
burg one minute and a half behind time.
Here Conductor Nolan inquired for further
orders but was Informed there wore none
for him. Accordingly ho pulled out for
the Intersection at a high rate of speed.
Just as tlte train moved away, Telegraph
Operator McOlain stepped into his office
and to his hjirror received orders over the
wires to bold the Snow Shoo train until
the special from Tyrone passed Milesburg.
it was now too late, and all the employes
around the depot, waited with bated
breath for tho terrible catastrophe, now so
imminent. On the Snow Shoe thundered
1 as if anxious to rush into the arms of de
i straction. Just at this moment a lurid
■ light appeared around the curve and tho
i Tyrone special hove in sight. There was
| short, sharp and decided work with the
' brakes, and the two trains were stopped
' within four feet of each other. The con'-
sternation of the passengers was very great
and it was with the utmost difficulty that
they could be persuaded to again take their
places in the cars. The feelings of the en
gineers and conductors of these two truins,
as they sped along the tangent toward ■
each other, can better be imagined than
described. We are seldom culled upon to
chronicle a more providential deliverance
from great danger. The promptness and
efficiency of the conductors and engineers
in the (ace of their terrible situation de
serves the highest praise. Their coolness
doubtless saved manv precious lives.
A MIIITAKV BUPMCK.—East Friday
evening a supper was given in the Hush |
House, of this place, to the officers of the
j Fifth Regiment, N. G. Previous to the i
j repast, however, Mr. Jefferson S. Jones, i
i who was recently elected to fill the vacancy j
j occasioned by the resignation of Second ;
Lieutenant Myers, of Company E, Phil
! ipsburg, was examined as to his proficien
cy. The result was satisfactory, and in
due time he will receive his commission
| from Governor Iloyt. About twenty
i guests from a distance were present and
| the sup|>er is s|Hiken of as a success both in
! regard to culinary skill and the pleasure
derived from it. The gathering was do
| nominated a "theoretical school," in which j
hColonei W. K. Rurchfield performed the j
part of master while the others weyc bis i
pupils. The exercises consisted of answers ;
given by the officers to questions pro- '
|xjundcd by Colonel Rurchfield u|H>n the
I several departments of military t*etic. ;
Gen James A. Reaver and Colonel I. S.
I Keller also entertained those present with
I instructive speeches.
AROTIIKR RAILROAD.—From the ( Jear
field Republican WO take the following no
tioe if the railroad project known as "The 1
I Susquehanna and Clearfield Railroad." It
will be seen that it intersects lite proposed
i road up Beech Creek in this countv :
The Susquehanna ami Clearfield Kail- I
road, for which a charter lias been grant
ed, -tarts at Keating Station, on the Phila
delphia and Krio road, anil runs to the
Moshannon creek, and up that stream ten
miles to intersect *ho I<ock Haven and
Clearfield railroad, recently chartered.
This latter road starts at Kerch ('reek, in
the Bald Eagle valley ; runs through the
: Hnow Shoe region to the Moshannon, and
■up that stream to Philipsburg, Centre
1 county. The rapital stock of the Susque
hanna and Clearfield railroad is S7OO,INN),
$175,000 of which has been subscribed hy
Thomas A. Scott, for the Pennsylvania
| Railroad Company. This proposed road
will pass through the Moshannon, Kar
thaus and Keating coal and iron regions,
the richest in mineral wealth in the State.

i tial ceremonies attending the union bc
s tween Rev. J. J. Lohr, of Lock Haven,
and Miss Emma Wise, of /.ion, which oc
curred at the bride's residence in the tatter
: place on New Year's day, are said to have
, been an event in tho history of such oc
casions in Zion. At H:HO o'clock the
ceremony was performed before manv n
vlted guests. Rev. Young, of the Evan
gelical church, officiated. After the cere
mony all gathered with the bride and
groom about a generously laden table. Of
course the Zion hand came and contributed
it* part to the enjoyment of the occasion.
After a brief but pleasant time spent in the
company of tho happy couple, the friends
separated. Mr. and Mrs. Lohr departed
the following day on a protracted wedding
tour. They were the recipients of many

LITKHAHY.—The weekly gathering of
the Addisonian Club, on Saturday evening
last, was well attended. This session was
devoted exclusively to business and resulted
in several important changes in the con
duct of the Club. A committee of three
was ap|M>inted on regulations, whose duty
it is to prepare such rules for the govern
ment of the Club, as arc not provided for
in any of the accepted manuals of parlia
mentary practice. A motion to devote the
concluding half hour of each future meet
ing to the consideration of business was
adopted. A resolution was also offered and
adopted that henceforth all subjects for
debate be ofl'ered in the form of a resolu
tion, one week previous to the time the
debate upon them takes places, and that
they he di|>oed of in a parliamentary
manner. Prof. \V. Seymour, the English
phrenologist, who was present, addressed
the Club, hi* remark* being principally
on the subject of "Reason. ' Tho Pro
fessor is also a mesmerist, and at the close
of the exorcises volunteered to display hi*
power on any person* who would offer
themselves for that purpose. Three mem-
UTS assented their willingness to be mes
merized. On two the Professor was hut
partially successful, but the third proved a
fine subject and enabled the Professor to
make n brilliant exhibition of mesmeric
power. This proved such an interesting
subject that after the departure of the
Professor the time was employed until
eleven o'clock in the endeavor to cultivate
the art. Two or three who conceived they
knew as much atiout the subject a* the
Professor, stationed their subjects before

the prevailing inactivity of town, aero**
tho small intervening space, into the ener
getic life and motion which has for some
time been going on at the ]'ho-nix Flailing
Mill. Where there is work there is cheer
fulness, prosperity and happiness ; where
there is idleness, either enforced or Volun
tary, there is always its offspring, vice.
Therefore, the hum made by industry is a
cheerful sound, and the clear note* of the
whistle from the I'hu-riix Flailing Mill in
dicate that busy hands are at work fash
ioning those objects which are to add to
the beauty of the world.
"Tho l'hii-nix Flatting Mill Company"
is the name, style and title of the corpora
tion of which John Ardell, Jr., is the
principle business manager, Hiid which
transacts it* business in the new buildings
recently erected in the vicinity of the
spring on the piece of ground that was once
fondly talked of as the future Bellefonte

pose which doe* as much good as it other
wise could under any possible circum

the rough board* go in and then witness
their transformation into the shapely door*,
window-sashes, blinds, bracket* and the
thousand and one substantial and ornamen
tal article* of woodwork which are pro
duced in a well-regulated planing mill.
From the street, entrance is made into
a convenient and cosy little busine** office,
where Mr. John Ardell may usually be
found, and where Mr. Harry Havre, the
clerk, is always at his jsist, either of whom
will attend to your wants with pleasure,

you to depart until you are satisfied,

will very noon find a long line of ojen
shed* erected in the yard into which they
may drive their lenrn*. The shedding at
present iu position i* occupied with the
large amount of lumber on hand.
At the right of the entrance Into the
mill proper is the boiier room. Here a
60-hore power engine works away with
lightning-like rapidity. To protect the vis
itor from approaching too near the heavy,
fast-moving b-lt which connect* with the
other machinery of the mill, a neat railing
has been constructed, and it would be al
most impossible for a child to ho injured
here. This i a very comfortable apart

every kind of necessary machinery, and

A planer, with a capacity of planing 2",i*K)
feet of lumber per day, is steadily perform

another planer with an equal capacity,
and whi( h will plane both fide* of the
board at the same time. Then there i* a
mat bine called the "re-aw" for sawing
'trips in uny desired thickness, a "pennon

to which *oon will be another ma

form their several part* in the work of the
mill. Instead "f sand-papering in tho old
way, a machine for that purpose is in posi

work in a short space of time, and can do
t much better than if performed by hand.

his bands very close te the saw, but woe to
the finger that touches it, for, like the
money you loan a magician, presto 1 and
it's gone. Much lime and attention is de

large enough to accommodate all the ma

early day a 20x40 foot addition will be
erected on the southern side of the present

the new room all the work will be brought
to receive its finishing touches. The mill
will then be as complete in all its depart
