We hear that rumors have been circulated that
cases of small-pus have occurred in this borough.
Such reports are totally without foundation. There
has not been a case of the disease occurring here,
and we have every reason to hope that we shall
escape entirely. We learn that the form of the dis
ease does not seem to be epidemic, and that its
occurring in so many townships, is owing to the
fact that persons having the disease in a very mild

contagion. By this means, several cases have oc

Tlik Paomerroey LIQUOR Elo.t..—The whole
subject of a prohibitory liquor law is now likely to
go to a Committee of Conference oldie two Houses
of the Legislature. The point of difference between
the House and Senate seems to be this.—The
House bill gave the enactment immediate force,
with provisions fat a Me of the people upon its
continuance in force. The Senate insetted, instead
of this, its own bill, giving force to the enactment
only upon Its being sanctioned by a vote of the
people. The House refused to concur m this
amendment, and the Senate have insisted on it and
directed a Committee of Conference. The House
will probably appoint its committee also to-day.—
This, then, is the present position of affairs. The
main principles of the bill having passed both
Houses, the committee of each Hume must be
composed of a majority of the friends of that prin
ciple, and the joint committee can only act upon
such points in the bill as are in dispute between
the two Houses. If the report of the committee,
when made, ts negatived in either House the whole
measure Mils, and can only be reviewed by the
introduction of a new bill.

to his friends in the hope of his ultimate safety,
Their expectations have been fortunately verified by
the result. Lieut. Strain is not only a hard adven
turer, but a spirited chronicler of his trials by flood
and field, and we shall expect an interesting account
of his wild experiences among the savages of New
Granada. Lieut. Strain is known u the writer of an
interesting account of his journeying', in South Amer
ica. The crossing the continent of South America
born the klantio to the Pacific, start ing,we believe,
at Buenos Ayres, and joining his ship on the Pacific
ocean, is one of the many recorded experiences in
travel of the adventurous lieutenant. We expect to
near from Strain a stirring history of adventure, and
his safety is a benefit to literature and science, as it
is welcome news to his friends.
FATAL. Awl:lA.7.—We are again under the pain.
fol necessity of recording another of those sad ac.
ciJents which bereaves a whole family, and robe
Pociely of one of its most useful members. The
particulars of the sad affair as near as we can lenrn,
are, that Mr. A J. Elliot a Bourg man of 24 years
of age, while et work at an excavation on the
Williamsport and Elmira railroad, on Mr. Doll's
section, went under an embankment, for the poi.
purpose of removing Porno alone when the mass
of earth gave way burying him beneath it, crush
ing him in a most shocking manner and killing
him instantly, and somewhat injuring two Irish
men. Mr. Elliot wag a young man of good, steady
habits, and possessed of business qualities rarely
met with amoug young men of his age. He leaves
a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn his
sodden and early departure.
This stroke of Divine will falls doubly heavy
upon this family, it being only a few weeks since,
when a cousin of the deceased wu soddenly cut
ofl from mortal existence by the Idling of a tree,
which instantly. killed him. We have the assur
ance that the symyathies of the whole communtiy
are with them in this their double bereavement
Tasotcat. Sorter.—The Cleveland Leader says
in Waupacca county, Wisconsin, a farmer sold a
yoke of oxen, and received his - ,pay in paper mo
ney. The man who purchased die oxen, being in
a harry le start oft, requested the farmer to assist
him in yoking them up. He accordingly went to
the yard with the man for that purpose, leaving the
money on the table. On his return to the house,
he found his little child had taken the money from
the table and was in the act of kindling a fire in the
stove with it. From the impulse of the moment,
he hit the chili a slap on the side of the head, so
hard to knock it over, and, in the fall, it struck its
head against the store with such force as to break
its skull. The mother, who was washing a small
child in a tub of water, in an adjoining room, on
hearing the fracas, dropped the child and ran to
the room whence the noise proceeded—and was
so much terrified at what she there beheld, that
she forgot the little chili in the the tub for a time,
and upon her renurnto the room found the little one
drowned ! The husband, after a few moments re.
viewing the scene before him, seeing two of his
own children dead, without further reflection, took
down his gun and blew his brains out !

A BAND or Hooves Aaaerrib —A regular organ

sons were arrested last week, by officers Martin

in burning a haystack. From that time until last
week, the confined their operation to petty larceny.
Last week they broke into the store of .1. Thom p.

all the small change that was in it. This last bold

found. On his person were found a revolver and
