Mr. Cameron submitted a memorial from

NEW YORE.—The spiritual excitement
or revival in the neighborhood of Roches•
ter, N. Y., seem to have culminated in
the case of Miss Eleanor Bonney, an a
dopted daughter of Mr. Preston, living in
or near the village of Avon. The story
in regard to this young woman is that
she had, since the beginning of last Au
tumn, constantly asserted that she would
soon leave her body and be absent sever
al weeks, returning finally to communi
eate_such news of the epiritnal world as
had never yet been given to man. This
prediction was renewed and dwelt upon
until her friends grew weary of the sub
ject. Finally, on the 11th of November,
she informed them the time had now come
and after some preparations with great
cheerfulness and composure, lay calmly
down, her breath growing shorter and
fainter until at 2 A. Ist., life appeared,en
tirely extinct: .
Six weeks have passed since then, and
still the body lies in Mr. Preston's house,
guarded and watched over by the little
circle of believers who still wait for the
re-animating spirit to return. In spite of
their 'care, the matter has now become
public, the coroner has been called, and
physicians have insisted on inspecting the
body. The ghastly description given
would seem conclusive as to its being
really a corpse, but still in deference to
title intente desires of the friends, further
proceeding have been postponed, and they
are still watching for the re-animating
body to rise again. Finally the Coroner
ordered a medical post mortem examina
tion, which after. some opposition on the
part of the friends, was completed, reveal.
ing the internal organs far gone into de
composition, but leaving the cause of
death still a mystery. Since then a spir
itualist medium has published a commu
nication; purporting to come from the
deceased girl, stating that at any time
during the six weeks she could have re
returned to the body, but delaying to a
longer time, she found herself unable to
re-animate the decaying frame. With
this explanation the believers appear to
be satisfied. Dear, dear
fried Kuhule, a German baker of Phila
delphia, was murdered on Wednesday
morning of last week, in the bakehonse,
by a German in his employ. The mur
derer robbed the house of fifty-five dollars
and attempted to kill Kuhule's wife in
her bed. He then fled, but has since been
captured by the police in a neighboring
lager beer saloon. The murderer was an
apprentice, known only as Fritz. Ku
hole was killed with a blow of a shovel
while engaged in leaning into a barrel of
Fleur, causing his death instantly. Fritz
then went into the room of his wife and
attempted to strangle her, but she awoke
and a struggle ensued. He heat and hit
her, and at* ockpowering her pushed
her under the bed, believing her to be un
conscious. He then robbed the bureau
of all the money it contained, and chang
ed his clothes in an upper room. The
murderer, who was captured calls him
self Frederick Heidenblut, and confesses
the crime. The money was found on
LEGISLATURE.—The Legislature of this

and Wm. C. Shurlock, Chief Clerk.

In referecne to the recent panic the

that others may become equally courag

FINE FURNITURE.-It will be seen by
reference to our advertising colums that
Mr. Jos. H. Crebs of this place has made
large additions to his furniture rooms.—
He claims to have the largest stock of
furniture ever before exhibited in our
town, enbracing all styles and prices.—
The public is envited to call and examine
his stock.
CALLED AwAv.—We failed to notice
last week that Mr. David Patterson had
been called to Pittston on acount of busi

Patterson, had taken his place. The lat

his father to pay the highest market price

THE WEATHER.—The spring-like weath

changed on Monday. Snow now covers
the ground to tho depth of several inches ;
the creeks and smaller channels are ice

is beard without. This state of things is
calculated to shaken faith in all prophe

prophets will have look to their laurels.

Ax IsposrrioN.—There is perhaps no
religious society in our county . more im
posed upon by "tramps" or vagrants, than
the Seventh-day Baptists, near this place.
In a conversation the other day with Mr.
Samuel Snowberger, Manager of the'So-
ciety, he informed' us that they had lodg
ed and furnished meals during twenty
nine days of December and January , to
sixty-eight persons of this character. The
two days which would make out the
month he thought would increase the
number to upwards. of seventy. These
people are notectfor their hospitality, the
rules of the society, we believe, not allow
ing them to turn off any , person who may
apply to them for longing or meals. This
seems to be very generally understood a
mong the class to which we refer. Con
sequently they are repeatedly called up
on to entertain the most unwelcome visit
tom who are not at all worthy 'of charity.
Spring elections have heretofore been

of the Democrat this interval:of time in

tkrWaynesboro' boasts some of the
prettiest ladies in the county, marriage&

of "single blessedness ?" Are young men
and "spry bachelors" too timid to ven
ture so simple a proposition as that of
matrimony? In view of this state of things
which is not confined to any particular
locality, a tax on all bachelors over thir
ty years of age, the funds to be applied
for the relief of indigent old maids, would
certainly not be out of place. The effect
would be, we think, to diminish in num
ber this selfish class of society in all cm
raunities. At best, they are only half
way members of society. Let the deficien
cy then be made up through taxation.

MASKED ROBBER9.-A robbery of most
daring and extraordinary character was
committed Tuesday 'night of last week,
at the house of Mr. Wm. K Soutter, in
West New Brighton, near Sailors' Snug
Harbor, Staten Island. Mr. Soutter is a
banker of New York city, and his house,
which is very handsomely furnished, had
been left for the winter in charge of ser
vants, much valuable property, including
silver ware, having been left on the premis
es. The New Yortc. Sun says:
"The house was broken into on Tues
day night, the servants bound and gagged,
and everything carried away. A party of
masked men entered the house and after
binding the servants, including the wait
ing man, three girls in the service of Mr.
Soutter; and two others employed by
Commodore Osborne, who were spending
the evening with their 'friends, they ran
sacked the house, and being unable to
open the iron safe in' which the silver
ware was kept, blew it open with gun
powder. The stable was also visited and
the silver mountings removed from the
harness. They then took the gold heads
of two walking canes in the hall wan
tonly destroyed much property too cum
bersome to be removed, and quit the house
cautioning the servants not to make any
attemptto stir before daylight. Mr. &ut
ter carefully estimated * the total loss,
which he said is .upwards of $12,000.- 1

"Wee, winsome Willie," as this is your
I send you my love and a kiss;
And "many happy returns" I would wish ,
If such a bright day as this.
Dear lithe boy, how I wish I could' guile'
Over life's dark thorny way,
That never sorrow or care should betide.
And life be one long perfect day.
Dear little hands! how I wish I could light
The load that you maybe must bear;
Dear little heart! how I wish I could brigh
Your way through this world of sad care.
May the Good Shepherd who loves little
Bless little Willie to-day ; •
Spare his young life to be useful and happy,
For this we trust Him and pray.
And when to manhood's estate he -has
May he be honored and wise,
Be a bright star in the pathway to glory
That glory that leads to the skies.
Or, if the shepherd in mercy should call
Ere the rough road has been trod,
Then we would know that our Willie. was
With the good angels and God.
