of old. they lived for the time upon the milk
and flesh of the flock. A boat load of grain
passed down the river in the meantime. Mo

to exchange a cow for a barrel of grain, but
was refused. Wintergreen berries were the
only fruit the forests afforded, which they oc
casionally used to vary their bill of fare.—

The attack upon Wyoming seems to have

to discbarge with fidelity—always having pro

but a paramount regard to the will of God. —
The unhappy controversy which finally rent
the Presbyterian church into two bodies, was
begun in this region years before it disturbed
the general assembly. The peculiar trials to
which it gave rise in the individual churches,
may be best learned by observing the manage
ment exhibited in the Assembly. We do not
intend to write a history of this church ut this
time, but refer to this state of affairs to say
that Elder Fox, was from beginning to end, a
consistent and firm friend of the doctrines and
order of the Presbyterian church. At a time
when the merits of that controversy were mis
understood by many, and the necessity of firm
ness in the cause of truth and order was not
appreciated by others, our churches not enjoy
ing the benefit of the weekly press as they have
of later years, it required the more self-denial
and stronger laith for a few to maintain the
stand which the word of God and our standards

fulness as a ruling Elder is a subject of grate
ful remembrance to many.
His first sickness, so far as is now known,
was after he was over sixty years of age. Al
though he enjoyed comfortable health some
years after, his vigor was impaired. A fall
from a horse about that time hastened the pro
gress of debility and disease.
But he relinquished the care of earthly busi
ness with cheerfulness. Some of the first
mouths of his confinement to the house were
marked by very high spiritual enjoyment.
lie bore the protracted sufferings of a ten
years' struggle with disease, with exemplary
patience and resignation. His greatest anxiety
was for the spiritual welfare of his children, and
the prosperity of the church. In the latter lie
deeply sympathised with the Psalmist when he
exclaimed, " If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let
my right hand forget her cunning !"
His end was peace. " Blessed are the dead
who die in the Lord."
POPULAR SOVEREIGNTY. —The excitement in
Kansas has already resulted in bloodshed, and
if the report be true in arson also. A leader
of the Pro-Slavery party named Clark has
been killed at a public meeting at Leavenworth.
A dispute arose as to whicli party had the
majority. Mr. Clark claimed it for tiie negro
drivers, and Mcllea, one of the other side,
replied that this was a lie. Hereupon Clark
struck Mcßea with a club, stunning him ; but
as soon as lie came to himself lie drew a re
volver aud shot his assailant dead. This done
he escaped, though shots were fired after him.
Finally his friends gave him up to the United
States officers at the fort, in whose custody he
remained at our latest advices, though a desire
to take him out and lynch him was manifested
by the slave-drivers.
It is also reported that the house of George
V. Park of Parkville, Mo. whose printing es
tablishment was lately thrown into the Missouri
River, has been burned down by his enemies,
and he himself lynched in Kansas.

THREE DOLLARS, and is therefore within the means of
every man who plants half an acre of ground. It is sim
ple in its construction, and executes its work with accura
cy and despatch on various kinds of soil.
Unlike other planters, it has no gearing to get out of
repair, but is carried in the hand like a cane, and can be
worked up hill or down; as well as on level ground, plant
ing as much ground in a day as five men can with hoes.—
It may also be used to plant beans, as it can be guaged to
drop as few or as many kernels as desired. It is meeting
with unprecedented success everywhere it is introduced,
having been presented at several Agricultural fairs, and
always without exception received the highest premium,
being the best and cheapest implement of the kind in use.
The undersigned, having purchased the right of selling
the said Planters in llradtord county, will canvass the

DAVIS' PLATFORM BEE-HIVE
I f IMIE subscriber having been appointed Agent for the
A counties of Bradford, Sullivan and Lycoming, has the
pleasure of calling the attention of the public to this useful
invention. The Hive is truly a great improvement on the
old square box ; and the facilities it affords for taking out
the honey are as harmless to the bees, as they are profita- j
ble to the oyvuer. No resort to drums and pans is needed
to hive the increase in the spring, and no resort to brim
stone, fire and fagot is required to conquer the bees and i
procure their honey in the fall. As tin- bees multiply, ]
new sections are added to the hive ; and when the honey ]
is wanted, they are removed accordingly. The arrange- i
meats for feeding the bees, ior changing them to different
parts of the old hive, or to a new one, for ventilation, are
unqnestionqbly ahead of anything hitherto known.
A description of this Hive is impossible, without refer- ■
cnce to a model, but an examination will satisfy any one
of its advantages. For soje, Town and Individual Rights,
with books, bill of feed, Ac., giving full directions for ma
king the Hive, and managing the Bees.

labor to all who become possessed of it. This is consider- !
ed one of the greate. t and most useful inventions of the
