The fuueral of Mr. Levi Scat-boltr, ou Suuday last, was largely attended by Masonic order, the different fire compauies aud citizens.

A number of jokes were pet i-t rated on the uuBuspccticg on the first day of April, and the Juveniles enjoyed the fun of luaklug many April fools. Oue of the tricks resorted to was the filling a large envelope with paper aud sealiug It, the writing ou the side being "April fool," which was placed on the pavement for parlies to pick up. We noticed aa ex editor greedily pick It up, aud after examiuiug it dropped as though it was hot Iron. The editor ol the Daily was also made the dupe of au April fool by a similar trick of the boys.

Mr. Haas keeps a general asbortaieut of con lection a ries, apples and all kinds of tropical fruit. He also has York Slate sweet cider and the bed Jersey crab cider, which be sells iu large and small quantities.

Dancing ivn Ciiicistiamtt. I'nder this head a writer, iu the Jhiilv over the Miniature of Truth, bad some strictures on dancing aud cliris' tiaulty, which elicited a reply over the siguature of L'ritict iu which the latter look the ground that dancing per c, or of itself, was no sin, a proposition so self-evident that one would hard ly have supposed uny intelligent uiau would at tempt to controvert it. But uot so. Truth iu his rejoinder, not ouly contends that dauelng is siu ful iu itself, but imagines that lie can prove it to be so by scriptural references. There never wus a book so outrageously perverted as the Bible, aud that too, frequently by pc'iious who profess to revere it inobl. Truth, iu order to sustain his position quote an authority to shew that "dancing is included iu rcvcliug," or iu olher word, because a man in a druuken de bauch may chose to qp nee, dauciug must neces sarily be sinful. By the same syllogistic rea soning be might prove that siugiug is sinful be cause In these rteelt siugiug is perhaps more fre queutly indulged in tliau dauelng. A revel U properly defined to be "a riotous feast," and by the same syftem of reasouing Truth might es tablish the fact that eating was sinful because it is au essential part of a revel. The idea there fore, In attempting to prove that dalieiug and revelry arc synonomous terms is simply absurd. Again he quotes from the o'2J chapter of Exo dus, lath verse as follows: ''Moses came unto the camp aud saw the calf and the iufteiny." Why did Truth omit the precediug verse iu w hich Moses says,"he also heard singing." Moses says distinctly that "ho heard them tiiiKjing," aud wheu be came iffh unto the camp "he saw the talfani the dancing aud his ungcr waxed hot." Now what right or authority has Truth, or any oue else, to s:iy that the auger of Moses was aroused by the dancing more than the siugiug. The tenor of the whole chapter shows that the indiguation of Moses was caused by the worship of the golden image, ui:d had not the remotest reference to cither the dauciug or siugiug, aud there is uot a word in the entire chapter that can be construed as condemnatory of either one or the olher. To talk of the idolatry of uaucing is sheer Lousensc, as much so as .would be the idolatry of singing. Dancing Is ot only recoguized In the Bible, but bus beeu cultivated among chris tians as au agreeable and innocent amusemeut in all ages, aud there is high authority, that it was practiced at one time as a religious rite among the Jws, and Is eveu now among soaie sects of christains. On the other baud gluttony is invariably condemned, and yet we bear of no denunciations from tbe pulpit against feasting, or excessive feeding, which is strongly cnuducive to gluttony, an evil ten times more injurious, physically, than even excessive dancing. There Is scarcely a privilege we en joy, or an amusemeut we iudulge in, that may not be abussd, and be that cannot discriminate between tbe use and abue of a thing is not a fit or proper instructor in uiorals or religion. Because some kinds of dauciug may be, and is, sometimes, objectionable, It does not follow that the graceful movements and measured stes of a cotillion, ciceially iu our owu dwell ings should be discarded as iiiiprocr and irreli gious, and for which is sometimes substituted, stupid plnysof more thnn doubtful propiiety. A Little Giul Assai i.tek nv Tkami-s. Two negro tramps were loitering about the premises of 1-. B. Wcstfall, in Caketown, on Tuesday morning last, aud when a little girl of Mr. Wcstfall was passing along oue of the negroes caught her and carried her a short distaticc. The girl screamed aud resisted stoutly, when she was let go and she ran towards the house. The negroes followed her, but Mr. Wcstfall came to her assistance and the negroes ran off towards the hill east of the P. Hi E. shops. Chase was made by a uumber of persons, .Ttid -they were overtaken somewhere about the bloody spring. They were lakeu before 'Squire Pursel, who com mitted them for a hearing. What the object was of these two tramps to make the assault can only be conjectured. They gave their names us David Lyuk and Motce Mathews. The utlair created a great excitement, aud when brought in the -Squire's office they were followed by au excited multitude of people. It is about time that something is doue to put a check to the ramp nuisance. They are generally a hardened class, uud should at once be driven out of town or arrested as vagrants. Dbatu oe Mhs. Riddle. Wc regret that wa arc compelled to aunouoce the death of a most estimable lady, the wife of Rev. F. B. Riddle, who died al tbc residence of ber brother, S. J. Packer, Esq., of this place, ou Tuesday morning last. Her disae was consumption, which wus hastened by nervous prostration caused by over exertion. Her bereaved husband U a prominent diviueof the M. E. Church, uud was lately sta tioned ut Danville, Pa. The deceased was a sis ter to the Hu. J. B. Packer, and S. J. Packer, Esq., cashier of tire First National Bnuk of Sun bury, and wus highly esteemed for ber many cliristiau virtues, aud greatly respected us a neighbor aud friend to the distressed. She was ii ted ubout forty years. The Sliiiinokln Tinttt says that that place ha several cases of small pox. Would il uot be well for our borough "dads" to give the streets and alleys of Sunbury a cleaning up, and thus endeavor to prevent that disease from making its appcurauce here t bally of Munuay. Oh, no, neighbor ; that would be too extrava gant. Economize say our borough "duds" aud pay off the borough debt before any more Im provements are made. Lift year about three thousand dollars were saved by the overseers of the poor by economizing. The borough indebt edness, however, is ibe same, wbirb maybe ac counted for by the streets and alleys receiving a little brushing In the spring and expending tbe money in that way. We dou't blame the Chisf Burges9, however, for squandering money In making auy improvements on our streets, as we feel confident that be is oppossd to all each pro jects. The bill to reduce the boomuge on lumber to I one dollar per thousand feet In the boom ut Wil liamsport passed the bouse finally yesterday afternoon by a vote of 10 J to 44. This qucstiou which has occupied tire tivnw aud attention of the legislature for so many years is at last disposed of. Tbe legislature can now pi.x eed to the com pletion of the remaining busmen of the session and with the disposition of this bill will proba bly be prepared for adjournment at or near the end of oue hundred days. J'atrivt, April Ah. La l:o e Ll'MHKK Contracts. The demand for lumber for building purposes coutiuues uud the outlook is encouraging. Mr. Firman Fields re ports that he bus just cut ere d into a contract to supply U00,000 feet of hemlock to a purty at Shamokin, for the erection of u uew coal break er, near that place. It is stipulated that the contract shull be tilled iu thirty days from uexl Mouday. He will also have a contract for fur nishing upwards of 200,000 feet of pine and hem lock for the new tannery ut Newberry. This lum ber will be obtained from bis miii at Fields Slulion ou the Northern Central raiJrotid and shipped direct to the contracting parties. M'illiaiutjrt Cazetle aiul Bulletin. Oi k neighbor of the Democrat lately went to consult a clairvoyant before Venturing much further into speculations of building the new jail. This is what he says about it in the JJailg of Tuesday last t "aiunbury ha- a clairvoyant stoppiug ia its midst, where persons for thirty-five cents cum get a knowledge of their future. The editor of the Lewisburg Chronicle should lose no time Iu ma kiDg an investmeLt, as thereby would be ob tained some knowledge which might eveu puzzle Providence. The editors of lie Williaiusporl Oaeette and Lulletin bad belter uot apply, as the Madame Clairvoyant is uot altogether proof against mesmerism.

" The Mt. Carmcl correoudetit of the Sha mokin Tinttt says : "There is a rumor afloat that the cveuing train from Mt. Carmcl wi.'l shortly be run through to Suubury. We hope it maybe Hue. Such au arraugemeut would also give us an other train from Snubnry to come up early iu the evening.' (ioiNO roil theGamblkus. The Wllllams-port SuHtlny Times says : "Wednesday night there was bustle and confusion extraordinary iu the viciuity of the Opera House, this city, created by a flauk movement of the police upou a gamb ling den that was fust achieving notoriety. For several weeks il was secretly whispered that something was rotteu in Denmark, and ou Wed nesday the authorities coiniug into possession of certain information, a raid was immediately planned. The deseeut was au easy one, for the Chief of Police reaching the door that opeued into the enchautiug chamber, rapped and it was was opeued unto him. Then followed u scene that almost bailies description. The card play ers around the tables sprang to their feet, as though they had suddenly beeu lifted skyward by the explosion of a uitro glycerine mine. There was a bounding to and fro, wild exclamations were beard and piteous uppcals for silence. Capt. Jos. Piatt brought up ou the left flauk, and the men who but a few moments before were flushed with the excitemeut of the enticing game, were uow pale witu consternation, .o . ... . . : X artful dodge could avail, or turn aside the com ing storm.

A bran new faro table, com plete, with all the gambling appoiutmcuts, check box, were captured, and taken to police beadquaiters. The police deserve credit lor this feat, lor if there is any law upou the statue book that de serve to be rigidly enforced it is that against gambling. There arc families iu this city who have beeu deprived Irom lime to time of the ne cessaries of life ou account of the propensities of the head to venture hard earnings iiihju the gamiug table. It leads to suicide, aud wretched ness in mauy tonus, while proprietors pass through the streets of cities clothed iu rich at tire, and brilliant with cosily jewelry. There ure other disreputable dens that deserve to be swept by nn ollicial tornado. Lit the storm break at once." Tbc ubove is a good example set for our olli eers to imitate. There are several gambling deus reporlej iu this place Ihrough which fami lies are deprived of the necessaries of life ou ac count of tlie propensities of the bead veuturiug bis hard earning at the gaming table. These deus could easily be discovered by a little vigi lai.ee ou tbc part of the officers. Et. Amekican. The Robiip.us Convicted. Never was an item of news rcud with more pleasure by the respect able deuizcus of the Shamokio region than that relating to the conviction and sentence of the four criminals urraigued before the court last week for complicity in robbing the Billniau mansion iu Cameron township. It put the com munity in a broad smile from w hich it has uot yet recovered, aud Coroner Taylor has been the recipicul ol mauy congratulations for the man ner in which he attended the case. We have men iu our towu w ho are ready and wiliiug to give the roughs of the legiou ull the attention iu their power, and we want to see our order loving citiztus staud by the in aud sec that they lose nothing for their pains.

The beautiful packet, With Its live, cheerful frelirht, Gliding sereuely Al a slow paeiug rate, The old horse power ruilroad, Fire buckets uud hats, Miiitia, battallious, And little bit batr. Have all beeu well rendered But passed to the rear, Aud must be remembered By many yet here. Not alone business marts But the people 'is well, Are embraced in these changes, As those living cau tell. Many nolle examples Of the good uud the blest, Have passed from these streets To the realms of rest. The old resorts also, Appeal for their share, And recall the bright scenes That have transpired there. The cold spring woods, And the Iluutcr farm, The fort, the nowk, Paint, rivurund barn. E'en the great blue hill, With the old leaning tower, Has shifted the scenes To suit the new hour. Dearsceucsof our childhood, To memory so clear, When we yet thus recall them, Seem strikingly near.

Some say we're not able To write such a piece, Cause, why, we're too much Of an African fleece. That is ull right. We've no more to say, But kindly invite you To come over this way. And not to go past, Nor from around our shop, To get shaved and your hair cut At some other shop.
