Falls have undergone marked changes tbl,

maws of rock and the gradual caving in of
embankments. The Horse Shoo, it is stated,
has evidently given way some thirty feet at
that partof the cone where the "groen water''
is seen, so that the horse appearance Is
metamorphosed to that of a triangular shape.
It is thought about una hundred and fifty
tons of rock mist have fallen in on the
Uotse Shoe alone, and old inhabitants are
tuking landmarks to notice the recession
that may take place before another year.
The American Falls, also, have evidently
given away at points to a certain extent.

has fur nearly soven years been a resident
of Oil City, and a member of the Venango
Co. Bar, has removed to Louisville, where
be Intends resuming the practico of his pro
fession. The cilizons'of Louisville will find
in bim a lawyer ol ability and Integrity, and
very prompt in the execution of business
entrusted to bis care. Although widely
differing with Mr. Converse in politics,
justice demands a good word from us on tlie
departure of one of our best citizens. We
hope he may find many friends in bis new
home, and that bis business may bo fully a,
remunerative as it has been in the Oil regions
of Pennsylvania. Oil City Times.
A Meeting cf citizens was held in
new tabernncleo at Salt Luke city oa the
8th. The crowd was enthusiastic, number
ing over twelve thousand. The Hon. L A.
Smith, Brigham Young's counsel, was elected
chairman. A committee was appointed to
draft a memorial to Conrea.". asking the
admission of Utah asaStato. The memorial
presents the similar petitions sent to Cun
gri'sss in 1S50 and 13U2, although properly
presented they were never brought to a
vole. The memorial claims a precedence of
other Territories admitted into the Union,
with far less order of government and gene
ral resources for maintenance. Territorial
government ut the bct is oppressive, a rolic
of toe old colonial form our luthers threw
ofT because of its injustice, exaction and tyr
anny, particularly tho practice of govern
ment appointing officers from distant States,
who are unacquainted with the necessities
of the people. Tbe population of Utah is
now 150,000 and they are anxious fur aolf
ioveriuuenr. Another accident occurre d at McClintock
