Returns from different parts of the Commonwealth indicate that the major ity vote of the State is in favor of license ; therefore, certain liquor men have elready become earnest advocates of the repeal of the Local Option law by the Legisla ture. Such advocates never .kuew, or have forgotten, that the Local Option law was made to meet the probability of the State as a whole, or majority, going in favor of license. If the State as a whole, or a majority, regardless of the opinions in different parts of the State, for or against license, had voted on last Friday, it would not have been local op tion : that would have been a vote by the Stale. The very letter and spirit of the law under which we voted last Fri day, was that the respective counties of this State should choose, each for itself, for or against license. The question was not, if the majority of the people of the State declare in favor of license, local'option shall be repealed. The question was, if Lancaster or any other couuly declare by a majority of its voters at the polls in favor of license said county t-hall have, license for the period of three years. If Juniata coun ty, or any other county, declare by a majority of its voters at the polls against license, said county shall have no license for the period of three years.

The jury called to eit .upou the case was composed of some of the best citizens of that town men who had known the unfortunate gentleman intimately and well ; and who, after weighing all the facts and evidence brought before them, wcie unanimously of opinion that the act was committed while laboring under a fit of iusanily, and that he had been in that condition for some time previous to the tragedy.

A despatch from New York, under date of the 21st says : This morniug wit nessed the finale of the dark drama which began nearly two years ago with the killing of Avery D Putnam", in a Broad way car, by Wm. Foster Everything possible had been doneUo avert this dis grace from failing ou bis innocent wife and faitiily ; but the Executive saw fit to withhold his clemency, aad the offi cers of the law were compelled to exe cute, their sad duty. ..The circumstances of the crime for which Foster suffered the extreme penalty of the law ere brief ly as follows : the story of tiik crime. On the morning of Friday, April 29, 1S71, New York learned tha one of her ! citizens, Avery 1). 1 utnam by name, had been cruelly murdered the previous evening while attempting to protect two ladies from the insults of a drunken ruf fian. Mr. Putnam, before he died, made an ante-mortem statement, in which he narrated the circumstances of the aasult and recognized William Foster as the person who committed the cowardly at tack upon him. The facts of the case, as published at the time, where as fol lows : At eleven o'clock on Wednesday night, Mr. Putnam, a merchant doing business at No. G8 Pearl street, and re siding at No. 3 College Place, accompan ied by Mme. Duval, a modiste of No. 7C2 Broadway, and her daughter, enter ed car No. 49 of the Broadway and Seventh-avenue line, to ride up town. Mr. Putnam and the ladies took seats in the forward part of the car, and at Six teenth street Foster, an cx conductor of the road, got on the front platform lie then stared persistently at Miss Duval, and, as sne paid no attention to bis grimaces, he pushed open the front door and looked directly rt her. Mr. Putnam on seeiug Foster thus insult the young lady, rose from his seat and closed the door. This incensed Foster aud he open ed the door again, which was immediate ly closed by Mr. Putnam. When the car reached Thirtieth street Foster came iuside and remarking that he had paid his fare and was entitled to a seat, sat down close beside Miss Duval, He then behaved in a brutish manner, and made a noise with hia lips which in duced the young lady to change her seat. Mr. Putnam then interfered, and said although Foster was entitled to a seat in the car,yet he would not suffer the ladies iu his charge to be insulted. At Forty-sixth street tho car was stopp ed aud Mr. Putnam alighted, leaving the car hjr the front platform. As he was assisting the ladies to alight Fester went out aud stood upon the front platform. He had previously said that he would give Mr. Putnam "hell," aud seizing the" car-hook proceeded to execute his threat. Striking Mr Putnam on the head with it be fractursd his skull, and inflicted wounds from the effects of which. Mr. Putnam died the next day at St. Luke's Hospital. Foster was arrested, tried, convicted, aud sentenced. Subsequently the Court of Appeals affirmed the seu tence and Foster . was accordingly exe cuted to-day. Haw Rot U Het Year Honey. An exchange says : Going to law to recover a debt, or a character, or any thing else, for that matter, is not a very paying occupation except for the law yers. To illustrate: In Yew Nork late ly a share in the Glenbam Hotel was sold to a Mr. Peters for 93,415 04. A judgment creditor of the seller,- whose judgment amounted to $2,954, attached the proceeds. Did he make the debt ? Not much. Why ? Thus it was : A receiver was appointed, who held the fund about three months, and out of it, 'by order of the court," he made sun dry disbursements. To himself, as "re ceiver and manager," he paid SI, 900 ; to his "counsel," $1,900 ; and to his ' at torney SI. 46a; to the "counsel for Peters, who 1i ogbt the share, $950; and to Peters' attorney, t2C5 ; to another individual, who figures as an "attorney," 225 more; and yet to another, who figures as "superintendent," SoOO ; and finally he paid the Collector of Internal Revenue. $S16. All these sums uieburs ed aggregated $7,984, so that when the disbursing process was done, there re mained S431 04 for the creditor, who had originally attached a fund nearly twenty times this Rmount, provided he could overthrow a claim that another party put in for "wages" somewhat in excess of this sum. The judgment creditor is rapidly be coming a candidate for' admission to a lunatic asylum, in his frantic mental en deavor to ascertain why this should be thus. We imagine a man had better iu dulge in a row up Niagara Falls, or at tempt to find them ten thousand dollars than go to law, at least in New York city. Throughout the interior of Africa, and indeed in some parts of Asia, a woman is prized for fatness. Beauty is associa ted with excessive obesity ; and such be ing the public sentiment, mothers season ably commence 8 system of die tic treat ment that makes'thetrtTa ighters irresist ible. Colonel Keating's travels give an account of the process of fattening a young woman for a Inuis market. As soon as betrothed, she is cojped up in a small room, with shackles on her ankles. If her proprietor has lost a wife by death or divorced one, their anklets are set for ward for the new matrimonial candidate. When she has attained a desireablc size. indicated by filling the pattern rings, she is carried in triumph to her new home. The preparation of food that actually produces that coveted dimension a mountain of fatness is call drongh, made of seeds of vegetable peculiar to the country. Some positively die from excessive fatness iu an effort to surpass in that bewitching accomplishment rival canumates lor matrimonial positions. These famous mortals are not the poor girls. They are the higher orders in so ciety, and therefore are ambitious, like fashionables in some civilized States of SHORT ITEMS.

Whit would you advice me to do 7 Ant. lou have heen brought up to farming, and undcritaiid it, and will L "at home'- in. it. If you have a good bod", and strength to work, take the land and the horses and wagon, and re solve to he one of the be3t farmers in your county. If you engage in telegraphing, you will have irregular hours, temptations to fast living, and various excitement, a lia. bility to be broken up in local, home ar rangements, aud when you begin to want ual.iry enough to support a family, a boy eighteen years old or a young woman who will work for email pay, will take your place, and you will be left without a business. Take the farm, and become a settled, permanent, and influential citi zen. . Take th e farm, and let tlioee learn telegraphy who have no farm offered them, and to whom such an opportunity will be a blessing. We want a million more farmers, good ones, more than we want anything else in this couutry. There is such ill-advised eagerness on the part of multitudes to ruth to the cities and railway lines lo become mer chants, artisans, rail readers, operators, peculators, etc , that the lands are left uncultivated, or Surrendered to shiftless Americans, or to foreigner?, many of whom are ignorant of American ideas, uncultured jnTuI things, and calculated to make very indifferent farmers, and not the best of citizens. But they are be coming masters of the soil, and Ameri cans are becoming the floating, landless population iu their own country. Tuhe the Jarm ! Phrenological Journal .

A singular incident occurred in Bangor school the other day. A little girl pur- ! chased a bottle of ether for her mother, aud took it with her to the seminary.

A Littlo Rock girl died a few days ago of what was supposed to be cerebrospi nal meningitis.
