- -END "OF 'ik •LIIIEL SUIT.—The libel suit
brought by Edna De in Proctor a
gainst Francis D. Moulton for $lOO,OOO
damages; growing out of, the Beecher-Til
ton abb., Was settled•by the arbitration
of counsel last week. Moulton agreed to
fay thut he knew nothing against the
Character ofMiss Proctor, and that what
he pnidished was upon • hearsay evidence.
He also expressokl a willingness to apolo
gize to Itlibu. Proctor for the wrong he
had done her, and to pay all'her costs of
the unit (whioh amount to $1,375) Difim
rrectoraeceptiod these terms.. • .
It is stated that Moultop's own costs in
the case, when added to that of Miss. Pro
ctor, will scarcely be less than $lO.l/00. A
ltiW little sum to pay for telling a lie.
tra..The points of the "financial bill a
greed upon by the Republican Senatorial
Caucus are as follows :—lt provides for
the resumption of specie payments on the
Ist of January, 1879,, for free banking,
and for the retiring of greenbacks to the
extent of 80 per cent. of the amount of
new national bank notes issued, and also
repires the forty-six millions of fraction
al currency to be gradually withdrawn,
and Silver coins of the denominations of
from five to fifty cents issued in its place.
The Secretary of .the Treasury is author
ized to use the surplus coin in the Treas.
ury on and after the day fixed for resump
tion to redeem ~the legal tenders, rind if
necessary to sell bonds for. the same pur
pose; if tho,amount of specie is not suffi
cient. There are confident anticipations
that it will pass Congress .and undoubted
,ly receive the Presidential sanction. It
accords with. both the President's and Sec
retary Bristow's views, and it will be seen
thatibe Government is already accumu

LYIWHINCI ur lowA.---At an early hour
last Tuesday morning a body of about
150 men, disg'uhied, entered the jail at
Des Moineei, lowa, knocked down the
jailer, bound him bind and foot, took the
, keys to the cells from his pocket,. over
powered the guard, and the cell where
Chas. Howard, the murderer of Johson,
who was the day before sentenced to ini
prtsonment-for,lifis was confined. How
ard's wife, whci was sleeping with him,
clung to him uttering horrible shrieks and
it was all that a half dozen men could do
to' drag him from his bed: A. rope Was
. .laCed-about—Lis-neolr i -aud-he-w; •
dragged through halls and courtbouae
yard to a lamp-poet and hung. 'AU the
men had their faces blackened, and:were
divided into squads, each doing its allotted
work withAut a, ward being spoken. At
ter 'reward A bad been fastened to the post
the mob db3persadis silently as they came.
It is supposed • tTe work; was done by
members of the vigilance committee in
that county.
im.George Peters, the landlord of a
hotel near Lebanon, Pa., has voluntarily
confessed the commission of an unsuspect
ed murder by him sixteen years ago.—
At that time he had been married, and
between him and his wife's brother there
was a bitter fooling. The brother-in-law
came to his house on a visit, and, against
his wishes. Mrs. Peters insisted upon af
fording hospitable entertainment. She
went to the barn to catch a fowl which
she intended to cook for dinner. The hus
band angrily followed, and ordered her to
go back to the house., She refaied,and he
struck her with a club, crushing her skull
and killing her. She fell under a horse,
a and nobody but the guilty husband knew
that the animal bad not kicked her to
death. He says that be was so stricken
with remorse that he twice took ineffectu
al doses of 'poison. Eight year's ago he
resolved to confess, but lacked the cour
age. He has now surrendered himself to
the Sheriff, and as there is no indication
of insanity; his story is believed.
Moasart, the well-known
watch inventor, has just been taken to the
'Wane asylum at Kalamitsoo, Mich.. He
bus been for yearn at work on a watch
which, without being larger than usual,
was' to show quarter seconds, minutes,
hours, days of the week, days of the mos'
and months of the year, and every fifth
time it was opened was to wind
He had completed it and had received
a large offer from persons in New York
for the right to mapufactuce it. A short
time ago he took the model apazi, to fix,
and ,being tunable to put it together again
some part having probably been lost, the
intense mental application upon the diffi
culty has deranged his mind.
iteirThe Albany Penitentiary will make
a clear profit this year of abouts3o,ooo.
Prisoners from many of the interior coun
ties, and some United States convicts, are
sent there, and the paymeht of their board
curers the cost of feeding shrewd
management of their labor makes the in
stitution a good investment for the tax
payers of Albany county.
Itee,,,Wlntet is now fairly upon us,
and the teams are hastening to the lum
ber woods in various parts of the country.
Our advice to every man who goers to the
woods, be he captain, cook, teamster, or
any other man, is to take along a good
stock of Jamie* Anodyne Liniment and
Parsons' Pnryative Pills. Many months
of labor . (in the itggregate) may be saved
by this precaution.

AarThe authorities .of Williamsport,
Md. are more enterprising than those of
some neighboring villages. The last Pi-
AO says they have purchased the ! Fountain
Gas Lamps and were putting them in po
sition. Our'eounctt it seems are not wil
ling to make so necessary investment with
out a petition from property .holders, and"
many of our tax-payers want several
weeks to consider the propriety of thus
lighting our streets before signing the pe
titim. This much desired improvement,
if accomplished at'all, need not , therefore,
be looked for speedily.
Mr. Andrew L. Coyle'died in this place,af

About . twenty-five years ago he removed

opened a hard -ware store. Eight years
ngti ne clime to Chambersburg, where he
has since been engaged in the same busi
ness. Tie was a quiet, much-respected cit
izen, and an elder in the Presbyterian
church. His loss will be felt in this com
munity, and especially in the congrega
ticru to which ho belonged.— Opinion.
