The War News had a disastrous ef

To us it, seems as though a European
war should have oxuetly tho contrary ef
fect upon securities, and no doubt such
will be the caso alter the first excitement

prolonged to any cxteut, we believe that
gold will demand a lower premium than
any point yet reached, while Government
bonds will be sought as an investment by
European capitalists even at a higher rate
than uny yet quoted.
On THE lGth the rumors of war in
Europe, caused the greatest excitement

On the street at one rime the premium
was run up to 11(5. The highest point

Mits. Lincoln has succeeded in get
ting a yearly pension of $ WOO. II; she
been in indigent circumstances, there
would be some excuse for such a pension
being granted, but while possessed of a com
petency, there is no good reason why Mrs.
Lincoln should be favored so much above
others, who have actual need of Govern
ment aid. Among the many soldiers'
widows distributed throughout the land,
.ire hundreds who are certainly linoe
worthy of help, and to whom a small frac
tion of this amount would have brought
the necessaries of life.
The bill "ranting this pension is a bad
precedent to establish, but proves, that
for Mrs. Lincoln, " Earth has no sorrows
that money cannot heal."
A Tfrriele Chime has recently been
brought to light in England, a woman
being arrested for causing the death of
children which she would take -to bring

Her plan of operation was to advertise
for infants which tor the sum of o should
be brought up with motherly care.
These advertisements, which were in
serted over different names would be re
plied to by those, who from various caus
es wished to be rid of their offspring.
Lately she had become so reckless that
four of the bodies of these little ones
has been found in the fields in the vicini
ty of he:- residence and wero traced to
her, securing her arrest.
3" The colored people down in Pel
aware have gotten into such a habit of
stealing rails that the farmers have bo
gun to bring their fences in at nights
It is a good deal of trouble, they say. but
it is not any harder than to undertake to
identify the ashes of tho rails when the I
thieves ore brought to trial. Personally
we arc not much of an agriculturist, but
it seems to us that perhaps the fences
might be protected very nicely if every
rail on each farm had a watch-dog chain
ed to it ; or if a fire-proof safe large enough
to contain the fence, wero erected in
each field. 31 r. Greely recommends lay
ing bank-notes along by the fences, so
that the thieves will take them and let
the rails alone; but he. doesn't know
enough about farming to start a two-year-old
orphan in the business of making
dirt-pies. Everyboy krows hew he plan

Two Ladies Shut In with a Mad Dog.
Particulars of a Very unpleasant ad
venture, in which two ladies of Petroit
were recently the heroines, are furnished
by a local paper :

two ladies, residing up stairs in tho block
on Woodward avenue, just beyond State

Suddenly, and without warning, the
brute sprang into tho middle of the room

that sent the blood from the indies' faces
in an instant. heading ff from the
room was a closet or clothes press, and for
this both of the woman instantly sprang,
'i ho dog did not follow nor attempt to
molest them until just as tliey were clos
ing the door, when he came near gaining
admittance, snapping and snarling savage
ly. 'J he male portion of the family
were away to market, and the ladies
found themselves prisoners, wiih a genu
ine mad dog for a keeper. 'J he animal
howled and barked and ran about the
room, biting at every article of furniture
and his heavy breathing and yells of in
tense pain would have made stronger
hearts quail than those shut up in the
The ladies screamed, the dog howled
and for nearly an hour there was an ex
citing time within a small space, the dog
now and then scratching and toariui:
aw;iy at. the closet door. At last, alarm
ed by the screams, several men from the
street made their way up stairs, ami with
chilis, alter a sharp struggle, killed the
frothing brute. 'I he dead bodv tlir
animal was thrown into tho alley and was
carted off by the scavengers. It was
looked upon by a large numbers before
being conveyed away, and none who saw
the eyes and the foam-flecked jaws doubt
ed that the animal had been seized with
an attack of hydrophobia.

teen years, a daughter of Henry 3Ieiscn
lielter, who resides at Kinding's mill, in
Windsor township, was seriously injured

the mill while it was in operation and

To tho Editor of tho Jttoomftdd ti;mis:
Sir I understand that a project is brew

County Seat, and that the Legislature will
be called upon to act on tho matter at its
1 deem it nothing moro than my duty to
warn the interested citizens of the county
of these secret workings and urge them to
bestir themselves to watchfulness and care.
It is understood or talked of that the Coun
ty Commissioneis will soon bo consulted as
to the propriety of selling out tho Court
l louso for Academical or Hcminary purposes,
to parties who stand ready to purchase, and
to defer repairing our jail, putting useless
taxes on tho good citizens of our county.
Will you bo caught up in tho matter? Will
you fold your arms and lio down at ease in
a state of lethargy and anticipate no dan
ger? 1 appeal to every one interested in
this matter to wake up and look to your in
terest, for rest assured, unless you do, you
will regret it when too late.
Where is your railroad ? I had thought
that long ere this time I would have heard
tho iron liorso, and shrill whistle passing
through Sherman's Valley, but alas I not so,
and let me toll you that unless some move
ment is made toward getting your D. B. & C.
T. R. Road in motion, you may as well and
almost to a certainty, anticipate the removal
of the County Seat. For tho sake of your
own great interest, do look at the true side
of the picture, and come from your places
of hibernation put on the garment of liber
ty and improvement, and show to tho world
that you are a zealous, energetic people by
building your railroad nml thereby forever
put a stop to all this agitation.
