that on the line of the St. Joseph and

a powerful head of steam and tried to

togt.. The indiscriminate slaughter of
game of all kinds in the United States
has aroused leading sportsmen to the ne
cessity of at once taking measure% looking
to the preservation of game and fish, and
accordingly a call has been issued for 'a
stational sportsmen's convention, to meet
at Niagara Falls on the 9th of September.
In a circular accompanying the call at
tention is called to the fact that this un
restricted destruction has resulted in the
total extermination -in this country of
some varieties of animals and birds, ot
driving them so far away from populated
districts that isolated specimens are now
only rarely found in the remotest wilder
'esses. Measures for the revision of the
game laws in the several States is one of
the principal objects of the meeting.
THE NEW PosTar. LAW.—Under the
new postal law, which allows four pounds
of merchandise to go through the mails
for thirty-two cents, the forwarding of
samples, instruments, &c., by mail has
been largely increased. The highest pos
tal rate fur four pounds is about as low
as that of the express companies to near
points, and much lowerthan express rates
to more distant parts Of the country.

HaI:MIELE DEATH.—Weclaesdny morn
ing blood was dripping from one ,of the
cam of the Pacific express west when it
entered, the depot in Lancaster. The cir
cumstances is explained , , in the following
from the Lancaster Examiner of the next
evening. A man named Joseph Vander
slice, residing at Philadelphia, was killed
at Mill creek bridge, on the Pennsylvania
railroad this morning about half past two
&clock. 'lt seems that he was in company
with a • companion named John Maneely,
and ale two were stealing a ride to Pitts
bu rg to attend tWe prize fight, and were
both lying upon top of a passenger car on
the Pacific express west, Maneeley lying .
lengthwise on the roof and Vanderslice ly

raised up his head and was struck by the
iron bolts, his skull being cloven in twain
and his brains scattered about on the tin
roof. It was dark at the time, and Manee
ley could not tell whether his compan
ion was killed or not, but he held him on
then he discovered that he was a corpse.
He gave the alarm, and by the aid of a
ladder the corpse was taken from the
carF. The body was to Phila
delphia this morning.
Tom COLLINS IN CALIFORNIA.—This
provoking character has arrived in Cali
fornia, and is there playing his tricks-up
on the uninitiated. A dispatch in a San
Francisco journal, dated Gilroy, Aug. 3d,
tells the following: "A ean named Wm.
Price a contractor of the• Pacheco Pass
Road, came to town this morning on bu
siness, and was met by a friend whose
name is unknown, who requested him to
-keephirnielf . shadY,as a man named-Tom -
Collins had accused him of having rcbbed
him of 095 in the mountains the night
for his arrest. Price, becoming enraged,
.g-ht-the_aforesaid_Collins with a navy
- revolverovhielthe borrowed from a-friend
for the occasion. The_ search was long
and tedious, using up about a couple of
hours. About sunset he traced him as far
as the San Francisco Saloon, Where he
was informed that the said gentleman had
got so anxious to get a shot at Tom Col
lins that he cocked his weapon rind acci
dentally shot himself through the leg, in
flicting a serious wound. Torn Collins
escaped. When last heard from he was
on his way to Tre Pinse."
Peisstow FOR GETTING Rica.—A gen
tlemen holding position of trust made use
of money not belonging to him, and was
tempted to act so by unsuccessful specula
tion and extravagance in living. The
judge in passing sentence, took advantage
of the opportunity to rend a wholesome
lesson to the community. He said: 'Yrn
are the self-made victim of a passion
which seems to he seizing on society, and
which, like disease, spares neither age
nor sex, the single or the married, the
rich or the poor—the passion for getii:ig
rich by one or more strokes of luck ; by a
process which is as much open to the fool
as the wise man, to the knave as to the
honest man. It appears as if in these
times men had but one faith,*one hope,
one object in life—wealth. Respectabili
ty, contentment with what 'we have, the
happiness of our family, honor, all are
sacrificed to this one god of the age wa
live in. Everything is to be sacrificed—
not only our own prospects, but the pros
pects' of those dearest to us, the prospects
of our wives and children—to the great
mania of getting rich ; and this wealth is
not that which is the result of patient in
dustry, uprightness in dealingt, and legit
imate trade, but the wealth of the gaming
A SCARED SWEARER-A few weeks

UNION BASKET Pic Nrc.—Thr Union
Sabbath School Basket Pio Nic on Thurs
day last was held in Lesher's woods along
side of the. Lein:l.6l)/g turnpike, about
one mile from town. The day proved a
pleasant one, scholars, teachers and spec
tators all seeming to enjoy,a pleasant
time.. The town and country seemed to
vie with each other in sending the most
persons to the picnic—they were there
from the infant to the men and women of
three score and ten; all seemed to take
to the situation quite readily—places were
selected, kettles swung, dinner prepared,
to which the walk to and rambling thro'
the woods gave keen- zest. After dinner
the usual plays and pastimes were indulg
ed in 'to the no small gratification of not
on y i 0 littlialffit - Cts - tvell the "big" chit
dren, who entered into the spirit of the
occasion as if the hand of time had rested
lightly on them. This was in every sense
a union plc nic and all the petty jealous
ies of creeds and cliques were for the time
forgotten. The 'Waynesboro' Band was
in attendance and at intervals discoursed
appropriate - pieces - of - musi .
We are requested by the managers to
expriss thanks to Geo. J. Balseley, Esq.,
President of the turnpike company, who
in his usual whole-souled way granted a
free permit for travel over the road.
We have no recollection of witnessing
on similar occasions such a display of
'spread. For a basket picnic such profu
sion of eatables is, we think, out of place,
and prove a great hinderance to pleasures
the female portion would otherwise enjoy.
A basket of substantials, without the usual
array of queenswaie, glassware, cutlery,
&c., ought to suffice on such occasions.
IN TROUBLE.—Some of our -sporting
young men who were recently fishing and
bird-shooting along the Antietam, in
Washington county have,it appears, made
themselves amenable to the law, the Ma
ryland Legislatutiihaving passed special
acts for the protection of birds and fish in
that county. The parties reported and
for whom warrants have been issued were

_proper authorities this plea will be no of
One of the parties referred to (three
persons) a few days since played a flank
movement on the Leitersburg constable.
They visited the creek at an early hour
in the morning for the purpose of raising
out-lines. They were engaged in the
Vicinity of Bell's dam when the constable
made his appearance at Dayhoff's shop,
where they had left their horse and wag
on. By some means 'the fishermen got
an intimation of the august official's pres
ence at the shop and his business,and beat
a retreat over the line with a fine lot of
eels, leaving behind a portiOn of their
lines. They were not out of the delemma
however, the horse and wagon being at
the place where the constable was still a
waiting their return. They were not
long iu devising a plan to extricate
themselves. A neighbor however was
sent after the horse and wagon who,whilst
the officer was reconnoitering the ground,
drove the horse and wagon across the line,
the party thus making good their escape.
The officer discovering that the fishermen
had out-manouvered him left for home,
report says, in no very amiable mood.—
The fine it seems for fishing is $20.00 for
each offense, the one half going to the in

MERCILESS JCDGES.—The Inter Ocean
of recent date contained a good article on
the subject of merciless judges, showing
that those who make the most fuis over
the Tilton-Beecher scandal, are, them
selves, persons who are'liVing lives of hy
pocrisy and shame. Says the Inter Ocean:
'When a man who has stood aloft in soci
ety, commits an offense which even the
rabble rebuke, the sting and the punish
ment are indeed great. It will be noted
however, that at the' bottom, of all this
outcry of the soiled and polluted mob is
the pernicious and defamatory assertion
that all virtuous professions are shams,
all religion a cloak, all goodness hypoc
risy. This was the. assertion of the shame
less Woodhull and her still• more shame
less sister, Tennie C.. Claflin, while in
Chicago a few days ago, enroute for New
York. It is the assertion of all whose
own degraded lives make them long to
drag others down to the level of their own
immorality. But, these infamous men
and still more infamous women maw as
well understand that their efforts will be
unavailing. The old principle of virtue,
which comes to us like the benediction of
the dying, which taught the ancient fath
em and mothers of the race that its loss
could only be wiped out in death, is still'
abroad in the hearts of the people, and
will not be destroyed though a thousand
, ministers should fall and twice a thous
and wives forget their fealty. The re
bound from the blow inflicted by the fall
of Mr. Beecher, if fall it is, will send this
standard of human excellence higher and
fix it more inflexibly in the hearts of cood
men and women than ever before. Such
a sad, trying example, may indeed be
needed to warn the people of the danger
, ous tendencies of the age. If freelovP,
with all its damnable heresies, its destruc
tion of all that is best and loveliest in
mankind, seeks to raise itself upon this
latest scandal and,gaiuing immunity from
this example, strike its poisonous fangs
into the heart of society, let an indignant
people frown it down. The children of
this generation have had enough of evil
and corrupting example. Be it the part
of good men and women high or low, to
teach the world that. there is virtue, honor
and'decenev still left in the land.'

SAD CASE OF SUICIDE.—Mr. Samuel
Strock residing at Cashtown, Hamilton
township, ended his life by hanging him
self to a girder in his stable on Friday
morning last. It appears that he. was
. greatly annoyed about a suit in court
with one of his neighbors. On the day
before, the case was tried and decided a
gainst him—the verdict of the jury thow
ing him into the costs of probably fifty
dollars. Returning home in the evening
he remarked to his daughter that this was
his "first suit in court and it would be his
last," but the'apparent careless manner in
which it was expressed, excited no suspi
cion on the part of the members of the
household. On Friday morning about
half-past six o'clock, he left the house to
attend to the feeding of his stock. He
was called to breakfast,but not appearing,
Mrs. S. went to the stable and found him
hanging to the girder. Greatly alarmed,
