Tall Stalk of Rvc.
Ir. Petit 15. Primrose, of Middle
Rmithfiold township, sent to our office on
Mouday last, a stalk of llyc, which meas-
iires i icet y inches m height, lins is
certainly an extraordinary product, and
wo have our doubts whether it can be
beat. If any of our farmers can, the'
are requested to send them along.
The May Term of the several Courts of
this County commenced on Monday the
-23d ult. Hon. George 11. 13arrett, recent
1' appointed President Judge of this
Judicial District presided, assisted by
Hons. A. Levering and A. Storm, Asso
ciates. The followiug cases were tried, viz :
Commonwealth vs. Andrew Piphcr
Indictment for arson in setting fire to and
destroying several ricks or stacks of bark
in Price township, the property of William
S. White. Upwards of sixty witnesses,
we are informed, were examined. Arer
diet uot guilty. Dreher and Davis for
'ommouwealth, Walton, Barry, Goepp,
and Pioedcr for defendant.
Commonwealth vs. Charles J. Price,
and Joseph Price. Assault and battery
upon Henry Zeigher. Same vs. same.
Assault and batterry upon Franciska
Zeigher. These two complaints grew out
of the same transaction and were tried
13 the same Jury. Verdict of guilt' in
the one case against Charles J. Price, and
of not guilty in the other as to both de
fendants, and County for costs. Charles
J. Prioe was sentenced to pay a fine of
810 and the costs of prosecution. Dreher,
Walton and Davis for Commonwealth ;
Barry and Boeder for defendants.
Commonwealth vs. Patrick Cahill.
Assault and battery upon John D. Eck.
The Jury acquitted Patrick but diricted
him to pay the costs. Burnett & Dreher
for Commonwealth, Davis for defendant
Philip Kresge and Jacob Correll vs
Charles Hawk. This was an action of
ejectment to enforce the specific perform
unce of a contract entered into by the par
ties in December 1S50, for the sale of a
farm in Polk township, containing 350 a-
crcs. The defendant asked to be relieved
from the performance of the contract on
iiis part, upon the ground that his wife
refused to join in a conveyance to the
plaintiff, that he was habitually intemper
ate at the time the contract was entered
into, aud that the price agreed to be paid
was greatly below the real value o'f the
property. The jury returned a verdict
at 9 o'clock on Saturday evening in fa
vor of the plaintiffs, subject to the right
of dower of defendant's wife. Dimmick
and Beeder for plaintiffs, Goepp, Brooke
and Davis for defendant.
Heport op Git and Jurors.
The Graud Jurors after a faithful and
careful examination of the present state
of the Jail and yard, have come to the
conclusion it is not expedient or absolute
ly necessary at the preseut time to erect
a new building. We would, however,
a-lvit:e or recommend that a small amount
of the proceeds of the Count' be expend
ed in repairing the old one, as the day
may not be far distant when a new buil
ding may be required.

The borough of Pottsville has recently
been visited by a graceless ecamp, who
claimed to be a Presbyterian Clergyman, and
under the plea ot collecting funds to build a
church in Canada, swindled several welldis-
posed citizens of that town out of small sum?
of money, and then repaired (as the Empori -

afterwards seen in a state of intoxication.
He was accompanied by a young woman

Another decision in relation to
much litigated estate of the late Peter
Miller, of this place, has just been made,
which, by reason of the amount and prin
ciples involved, has attracted no small de
gree of attention and public interest. It
is generally known that Mr. Samuel Wil
helm, who was an executor and trustee
under the will, made a contract in 1848,
with the Heir at law, by which, in case
the will should be invalidated, the nett
proceeds of the estate should be divided
between them, Mr. Wilhelm contending
that in case the then claiming heir at law
could not establish his pedigree, he (Mr.
W.) would then be next of kin and heir
at law himself. This agreement was not
made known at the time and Mr. Wilhelm,
us one of the executors, appeared and de-
te"af? tue wougM oyrewer Miner,
of Ohio, as the heir. The Supreme Court,
. h decided fc be yoid
an(j tbo large real estate of the deceased
was thereunon divided. Mr. Wilhelm ta-

It is very true in his case. Yesterday
afternoon about l o'clock Sheriff Pal
mer read the warrant to him, in the pres
ence of several witnesses. On entering
the cell, Evans sat by a small table con
taining his books, and nodded pleasantly
to his visitors. He seems very little
changed since his trial. His cell is neat
and clean, with pictures from some of the
magazines fastened around the walls, and
his name is marked on the floor with the
hot poker. The sheriff announced the
purport of his visit, and as he commenced
reading a perceptible tremor passed over
Evans' features, and very soon, coveriug
his face with his hands, he sank sobbiug
upon the little table by his side, where he
continued till his visitors had departed.

XtjSomo wag of a Whig Postmaster
in the interior of JSTew York, has sent to
the Post Office Department a lock of his
hair, sealed in the wax with which his
bundle of returns for the last quarter
were secured. It looked like an imita
tion that his (official) scalp was ready for
the victors, whenever they chose to take
it. Those who have examined the I6ck,
say that the fellow was no "Silver Grey,"

A New Kind of Duel.
Mr. Cr. W. Kendall,' one of the editors
of the Xew Orleans Picayune, in a recent
letter from Paris, relates the following.
" An original and most singular duel,
and a most ludicrous withall, was fought
here in Paris a few days since, the par

The Delaware Water Gap,
Is well worthy the attention of travel
lers and admirers of the works of nature.
Many conjectures have been put forth a3
to the cause of the rent in the rocks at
that point. The height of the mountains,
on either side, is said to be over 1500
on! tlio -width of breach between
itt U uuu - - -
the mountains, at the base, one thousand
feet, something similar to the gap in the
Sharp Mountain, below Pottsville. The
distance through the mountain is said to
be three miles. It is estimated that the
amount of matter thrown out by the pas
sing of the Delaware, if only one mile in
length be taken in the accouut, would
give the euormons amount of 12,672,000,,
000 cubic feet sufficient matter to cover
twenty five square miles, fifteen feet in
It is urged by a writer, from the quan
tity of alluvial lauds above the mountain,
that, at some remote period, a dam of
rcat height at this point obstructed the

very near as high as the mountain, it
would have raised the water that it might
have run into the North lliver. It has
been conjectured that this dam was en
gulfed by the great convulsion of the earth,
and these reasons are given in the proof:
The distance through the mountains is a
bout two miles, within which the river has
an average width of half a mile, and the
water is a3 still as a mill-pond, so that a
raft will be driven by the impulse of the
wind up or down; and the boatmen report
that a hundred and ten years ago, no
bottom could pe found with their longest
It is contended that had the mountain
been worn by abrasion, such a gulf would
not have existed and that the bottom of
the river would have consisted of the same
material which from the nucleus of the
mountain,(hard granite) instead of alluvi
Professer Rogers maintains that by

transverse dislocation in the Appalachian
chain, may have caused this rentor chasm;

The Eastern papers state that a ma
chine has been invented, but not yet patented,-which
will do the entire pegging
of a shoe, with cither one, two or three
rows of pegs, in from two to three minute3.
The number of rows make no difference
in the time, and the work is pronounced
far better than hand work can be. A
further novelty in the case is, that the'
machine makes its own pegs as it does
its work, thus destroying the value of
that ingenius machine for making pegs
that has so long been both useful an&
Freaks of Lightning,
The Congregational Church at Look-:
port, 2T. Y., was struck by lightning on-4
Sunday last, during divine service. It!
entered the gallery occupied by the sing-"
ers, iustautly killing Luther Crocker, ono
of the choir, and injuring six others, three
of whom are ladies. Consternation and
dismay seized on all the congregation at
the sudden and awful event, and the Eev.
Mr. Gilman, who from the pulpit beheld
the full effect of the calamity, fainted a
way. The shock was terrific,- and its ef
fect for several minutes rendered every
person powerless. The steeple was shiv
ered. The iniured narties were much
burnt, but all except one are doing well.
There was a terrible thunder storm str
Putney, Vermont, and vicinity last week.
The lightning, besides cutting up some
strange freaks, did materially damage.

Singular Occurrence. A rather singul

Mr. C. Hartmever. nf th

along the road, a portion of which was
covered pretty deeply with water, when,
all at once, the ground began to give way..
Mr. Hartmeyer got out to ascertain what
the matter was, when the horses and wai?-
on suddenly disappeared beneath the sur-
ace. In a moment or two thev returned
to the level of the cround, being thrown
up by a gush of water, and again went
down. The horses wcrer finally got out
of the hole, which was some twenty feet;
deep. They were both dead. The man
