tale of unparalelled horror on the pages of
Western history. As yet however not
half the story of suffering from terrible .
frosts, and damage from blinding snow
storms, has met the public eye. Snow
has been piled house high in many local
ities, and men, women and children frozen
while endeavoring to obtain food and fuel.
In some cases, parties were overtaken in
the open air and killed by the blight ing ern
brace of the North wind; in others, whole
families died by their own fireless hearth

some of the incidents which have mark
ed the winter of 1872 in the West.
vm.The facts of the immense frauds per
petrated on the treasury of New York by
the Tammany Ring have been known for
so many months that they are almost an
old story, but the practical workings of
the thievery were not perfectly illustrated
until Andy Garver returned from his ex
ile and turned State's evidence against
the rest of the robbers. In the trial of
Mayor Hall of last week Garver was plac
ed on the stand as a witness for the pros

own rascality in the presenting of a fraud

mount, and the remainder was distribu

nothing directly implicating Hall in the
affair, except that the warrant for pay
for labor never performed must have pas
sed through his hands and been audited
by him. Ex-Comptroller Connolly has
tied from New York on account of the

On yesterday afternoon I was pleased
to. visit our School Room in Quincy, that

have proved a success, as was practically

want to show the. advance they have Made

have their day, but thanks be to our learn •

rooting of: ignorance and the upbuilding
of knowledge. 'Tis an old adage, that we
live in an age of progression, and we sure

reaped the benefit of the adage. During
the last few years we have been paying
such wages for teachers as will induce the
rising generation, to.make themselves fit
subjects to teach those yet unborn what
they have obtained by attention to their
studies and having as tutors men and wo
men of knowledge.. I therefore feel that
it is the duty of the School Boards to em
ploy the best teachers of the land at such
wages as will secure their services (he that
what it will) even if it would treble our
present taxes. Only too many of us I am
afraid have been made to feel the want of
a more thorough education. We should
view the matter as suicidal to do anything
that won d prove detrimental to our chil

done by not grasping so tightly the Al

A WontAN MusDEnEn.—The Pitts
burg Commeicial says: The vicinity° of
Johnstown, Cambria county, is at present
startled by the discovery of one of the
most fiendish murders that has been com
mitted in this State for years: The body
that of a female, was first seen on Fri.
day morning by John Shriver a resident
of Johnstown, lying on the side of a moun
tain, on the lands of the Cambria Iron
Company. He, it appears in the evidence
had been out fox-hunting, when one of the
dogs he had with him got upon the track
of a man in the snow. The dog followed
it and Mr. Shriver continuing in the
course pursued by the dog came to the
dead body of a woman, evidently about
45 years old. It was some distance from
the place to the nearest house, and Mr.
Shriver at once proceeded to alarm the
people. During his absence from the bo
dy, some person, yet unknown, covered it
with brushwood and leaves and set them
on fire. When Mr. Shriver and some
persons to whom he bad communicated
his discovery, returned to the spot the fire
was stilt smouldering.
Mr. J. A. Harrold, the coroner of
Cambria county, was notified of the find
ing of the finding of the body, and empan
neled a jury for the purpose of holding an
inquest. Near where the remains were
found there was picked up a tuft of bloody
hair, a pair of spectacles, two combs, a
white handkerchief, and a full set of ar
tificial teeth. These articles are now in
possession of the coroner.
The coroner cut from tip victims' fleck
