The Baptist Church.
The Baptist Church at this place which
wa? waked up and set in motion, through
the energetic preaching of the Rev. Mr. Grow
<ast winter, is now one of the most wide-a
wake denominations among us. JFo learn
that th<y have purchased the Presbyteriar
Church House, and propose to repair and fix
it up in more modern style. As it is now a
good building and finely located, they wil
hare one of the neatest and finest places for
worship in town.
Let's make common cause of tho matter
and build up a good Academy, the nexi
thing. With such an Institution, we shal

Drowned In a Spring.
An infant son of C. H. Mowry, of Meshop
pen, aged about 14 months, was drowned or
the 27th alt., in a spring of water near by
the house of his father-
The em ire bottrm—stringers, floor and all
—of the upper canal bridge at this place foil
into the canal, one day last week ; and, what
is more important, a Sir. Barber with his nor
team and wagon, who was parsing over it at
the same timp, fell with it. Fortunately they
escaped with but slight injuries. This is the
second occurrence of the kind, on these canal
bridges since las'. Fall. As the company di
not rebuild them; and as we have but one left
and that apparently very insecure, we shall
probably soon find ourselves cut off from al
intercourse with the river side of the canal.—
The neglect on the part of the Company tc
provide against these accidents, receives, a
it deserves, severe censure.
No Questions Asked,
A friend left at our office a few days sinct
a fine lot of black Raspberries, and turning
his back upon us, before we had time to say,
thank ee, went away. Such unusual conducl
on the part of a man who appeared to be en
tirely sane, required some explanation. A
dav or two since, seeing our friend Mr A W.
Fulton, who was the strange acting individu
ai and inquiriog into the matter, we learned
that he picked the berries on purpose for us !
Me ate them; and have ever since felt
friendly towards all berry pickers in general
and A. W. F. in particular.

We've been struck with a streak of some
thing that's better than Jersey lightning
George 11. Kelly, who used to handle type
metal in our office, but who for the past five
or six years has dabbled in more precious
metals in Ca'ifoinia, has made us supremely
happy, by seud.ng for a year's subscription
to the Democrat a round piece otyyellowish
colored metal, which if our memory is not at
fault, used to be called a §2,50 gold coin.
We took several long, searching looks at
the thing and for some time could hardly re
sist the idea that it was sjme new-fangled
! nickel. Referring to an old coin chart, our
fears we dissipated. It is indeed, a genuine
gold coin. We should not dare to make this
fact public, on account of our creditors, but
thanks to the powers above us—gold is not a
legal tender nw. It's ' (green bax" now(see
abolition strictures on Judge Sharswood's
opinion that a man should pay in coin when
he agrees to.) To relieve the light fingered
gentry of any tronble in regard to this mat
ter. we feel bound to say that the article they
most desire, is buiied deep, very deep, in
the ground—that if they dig deep enough
and long enough tbey may get some of it.—
We did think that for us, to make a
last will and testaments, would bo to leave
that interesting document, only, to our pos
: efity. Since this streak of luck wo think
j of willing and testameniing this piece of mo
ney to some, as yet, unborn grandchild that
j he may know what sort of trash his foolish
old grand-dai used as a circulating medium
when he was a boy. The " green bax'' sys
tem will by then be perfect, and the great
axiom, that "a national debt is a national
blessing," will then be fully understood and

THE STOLES WATCH.—One of the best
stories we remember, refering to a stolen
watch, cotnts from a French source. In
the pit of the old French opera, one of the
audience suddenly di>covcrcd that, his
watch was gone. The evening's entertain
ment had not commenced, and the owner
of the property mounted a bench, stated
the loss, which could not have cecured
above two or three minutes, and begged
those around him to remain perfectly quiet
as his watch struck the hours like a clock,
and, it then being on the stroke of seven,
the watch would speedily indicate into
whose possession it had fallen. There was
a dead sdcnce ; but the eye pioprie- j
tor detected an individual who was trying I
to edge away from the vicinity, and he im i
mediately denounced the skulker as the
thief. The latter was seized, and the j
watch was found on him ; and as the owner j
quietly put it in his pocket, he remarked , |
; "The watch does not strike the hours,
' but I thought my assertion that it did
. would enable me to strike out the thief."
j To SAVE ICE FROM MELTING.—A Ger
man Chemist publishes the following sim
ple method of preserving small quantities
of ice, which he has practiced with success.
Put the ice into a deep dish, cover it
with a plate, and place the dish upon a pil
low stuffed with feathers, and cover the top
with another pillow carefully, by this means
excluding the external air. Feathers are '
well known nonconductors of heat, and in
consequence the ice is preserved frqm melt
ing. Dr. Schwartz states that he has thus
preserved six pounds of ice eight days.
The plan is simple, and within the reach of

WHAT JEALOISY WILL DO.—A young
lady of respectable family was arrested by
the police of this city OH Thursday, dis
guised as A negress, having blackened her
face and neck with oil and charcoal. It
seems that the was suspicious of ano'bcr
young lady being on too intimate terms

PREPARATION EOR THE TEETH —Disolve
two ounces of borax in three pints of water;
before quite odd, add one teaspoonful of
spirits of camphor : bottle the mixture for
j use. One wioe glass of the solution added
' to half a pint of tepid water is sufficient for
each application. This solution, appled dai

whiteness, arrests decay, and induoes a
heathy action in the gums.

The mo*t Important and Valuable Invention qf
the 19 ty Century,
1. The Dasher is superior to any other, by being
as simple as the old dasher, and combining the at
mospheric principle therewith, and the Butter Galh
2. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as the
same power applied to this in like mechanical oper
ations will make one-lourth more reciprocations.
It. It is superior to all others, inasmuch as it pro
duces in a much shorter time.
4- It is sujierior to any other, inasmuch as it pro
duces a much b<-tter quality of Butter,
Lastly it is superior to any other Patent Churn,
inasmuch as it is 500 per cent, cheaper than any
It is well known to Dairymen and others, that
Butter is contained in minute globules or sacks cov
ered with a membrane, and requires the action of
air to prepare the covering to be removed by lric
tion. Toe Scientific American says :
"If cream is daeiiod against hard substance or
mashed between bars or rollers,it breaks tha globules
and becomes oily, by destroying the grain. It
should be thrown into currents and counter-currents
by the action of air, causing a friction by the cur
rents against each other, removing the covering
without breaking or bursting the globules."
This is the principle which the inventor of this
Dasher endeavored to keep in view, and the result
shows a much
LARGER YIELD OF BI TTER OBTAINED IN
LESS TIME THAN ANY OTHER DASUER
Experiments have proven that any other method
except pumping air through the cream ,will not pen
etrate sufficiently to oxygenixe all the globules pre
paratory to concentrating the butter. Throwing it
into the air by clappers of old fashioned Dashers,
does not sufficiently expose it to the air to bring out
The above Patent Dasher has beea purchased for
Susquehanna, Wyoming and Luzerne Counties by
A, P. Baldwin, of Montrose. The process of churn
ing can be seen on exhitdtion at Wall's Hotel in
Tunkhannock, for a few days by Mr. Reynolds,

RAIL ROAD CO.
2 HEIR I IRS 2 MORTGAGE
As an Investment.
The rapid progress of the I'nion Pacific Railroad
now building west ffotn Omaha, Nebraska, and for
ming, with its western c >i median.-, an unbroken line
; across the continent, attracts attention to the value
of the First Mortgage Bonds which the Company
; now offer to the public. The first question ask# Iby
prudent investors is, "Are these bonds secure ?"
i Next, "are they a profitable investment ?" to reply
1 in brief;
Ist. The early completion of the whole great lins
j to the Pacific is as certain as any future business
| cveut'can be. The Government grant of over twen
ty million acres of land and fifty million dollars in
| its own bonds practically guarantees it. One fourth
| of the work is already done, and the track continues
! lo be laid at the rate of two miles a day.
2d. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds are issued
upon what promises to be one of the most profitable
I lines of railroad in tha country. For many years it
must be the only line connecting the Atlantic and
i Pacific ; and being without competition, it can main
i tain remunerative rates.
3d. 425 miles of this road are finished, and fully
I equipped with dejots, locomotives, cars, Jfcc., and
1 two trains are daily running each way. The materi
als for the ,emaining 131 miles to the eastern base
of the Rocky Mounteirs are on band, and it is under
contract to be done in September.
4th The net earnings of the sections already fin- j
ished are several times greater than the gold inter- i
1 est upon the First Mortgage Bonds upon such sec
; tions, and if not another mile of the road were built j
| the part already completed would not only pay in
i tcrest and expenses, but be profitable to the Com
sth. The Union Pacific Railroad bonds can be is
ued only as the road progresses, and therefore can
never he in the market unless they represent a ban a j
! fide property.
6th Their amnnat is is strictly limited by law to
a sum equal to what is granted by the U. S. Gov
i eminent, and for which it takes a second lien as its
security. This amount upon the first 517 miles west
from Amalia is only $16,000 per mile,
i 7th The fact that the U. S. Government consid
ers a second lien upon the road a good investment, '
and that some of tie shrewdest railroad builders of
the country have alreadv paid in five million dol
-1 l.irs upon the stock (which is to them a third lien),
j may well Inspire confidence in a first lien,
j Bth. Although it is not claimed that there can be
i any better securities that Governments, there are
parties who consider a first mortgage upon such a '
proficrty as this the very best security in the world, !
i and who sell their Governments to re-invest in these
bonds—thus securing a greater interest,
9th. As the Union Pacific Railroad bands are offer
j ed for the present at 90 cents on the dollar and ae
! crucd interest, they are the cheapest security in the
market, being over 15 per cent, loss than U. S.
10th, At the current rate of of premium on gold,
' they pay
Over Mine per Cent. Interest.
