ris, in company with another gentleman, who
residee on Terrace Mountain, Huntingdon
oonnty, gave chase to a bear that paid them a
visit and feasted himself in the orchard. After
pursuing it for about two miles, the bear took
to a tree from which he was brought down by
a ball through the left breast. He soon after
expired Iron' the repeated attacks of the dogs
and loss of blood. Though not being the lar

being 252/ pounds clean meat. '
Tzsams FALL.—Mr. Frederick Haley, of

crossed the railroad bridge to meet his coal
teams at the upper Monongahela bridge, but
slipping in some way or other, he was precipi
tated from the trestle work to the ground. He
was found in a helpless condition, being de.
prived of the power of motion, and having no
feeling in his lower limbs„ the result of a frac

removed to his home in Monongahela borough.
MAN Ilmen.--On Thursday morning last, a
brakeman, named James McClure, running on
one of the freight trains between Altona and
Harrisburg, foil from the train a short distance'
arove Huntingdon and was instantly killed,
the cars passing over his body and cutting it
almost in twain. He had been directed by the
conductor to asiist in shifting some stock cars
from the train on the siding at Petersburg,
and it is supposed that while attempting to
pass from his position, on the front of the train
to the rear, over the top of the cars, he missed
his footing and fell upon the track. Diseased

STRAWS SHOW WHICH WAY THE WIND BLOWS
—and Honey Makes the Mare Go—are two an
cient and common proverbs, which suggested
themselves to ns the other day, as we heard re
lated an incident at once rich and racy.
A certain well ka,,wo secession sympathizer,
whose proclivities are all opposed to-virtue,
temperance and religion, justifies his boasted
neglects to attend church, on the ground that
the Harrisburg clergy are given to fanaticism.
This fanaticism consists of an outspoken, fear
less and manly attachment to the cause of the
cot Entry, as that cause and country are imps
tilled by the hellish influences and servile adu
lators of the institution of slavery. Lately,
however, this secession sympathizer has dis
covered that one of our ministers never preaches
" fanaticism "—never alludes to the country
in his prayers or his sermons—but in private
conversation proclaims himself the friend of
slavery, on the ground that human slavery is
essential to the prosperity and the progress of
the American nation. Secesh dough-faceism
became convulsed with ecstacy with this feel
ing an the part of the pastor, and in high
approval, aent him a check for fifty days.

Down Coxas Its Housa.—The Altoona Tribune
thus disposes of impudence and plagiarism, as
both are developed in this region :
The local of the Harrisburg Patriot and Union
rails out against exchanges copying items from
that paper and changing them to snit their re
spective localities, without giving credit. Con.
sisteucy is a jewel not possessed by the local of
the Patriot and Union, as we find, in the same
column with the complaint, a local notice of the
killing of Barney Gaven, which appears without
Kum:No.—A gentleman wrote :
"Men scorn to kiss among themselves,
And scarce would kiss . a brother,
But women want to kiss so bad,
They kiss and kiss each other.
Whereupon a lady penciled this reply, and
eft it for the fool's instruction :
"Men do not kiss among themselves.
And it's well that they refrain ;
The bitter dose would vex them so,
They would never kiss again.
As sometimes on poor woman's lips
Is applied this nauseous lotion,
We have to kiss among ourselves.
As a counteracting potion."
STRICKEN FROM TIM BOLL OF ATTORNEYS ON HIS
OWN MOTION.—The Pittsburg Dispatch says that
Jacob B. Miller, Esq., of Fayette county, in the
Supreme Court, on Tuesday afternoon, moved
that his name be stricken from the roll of attor
neys, for the reason that one of the Judges had
impeached his integrity, and therefore he was
not willing to pracUce in a court, one of whose
members might entertain a suspicion of his
fidelity as an attorney.
Justice Woodward interrupted Mr, Miller to
say that he had misunderstood the reference
made to him, and Intimated that it would be
better to withdraw the motion.
Mr. Miller insisted upon his motion. He
might rest under the imputation if he were a
young man, ambitious in the profession, but at
his time of life professional interest could not
induce him to yield at the expense of self
respect. He could defend and vindicate, out
of court, his character, which had, for the first
time, been, impeached in court.
Chief Justice Lowrie said Mr. Miller had a
right to have his name withdrawn from the list
of attorneys. The motion was granted.
Mr, Miller complained of the language used
by Justice Read in the opinion delivered by
him in the case of Jacob B. Miller vs. Elmira
Reynolds, error to the Con 4 of Common Pleas
of Fayette county, the judgment of the court
below being affirmed. Judge R. says : "There
were two uncommon provisions in this contract
which we hope never to see again in such agree
ments between attorney and client—that she
should not compromise without his consent in
writing, and that the attorney should procure
indemnity for costs, so that she should in no
event be liable for costs.!'
CHAPTER op Acomaiers.—The Altoona Tribune
of the 27th ult. says that on Wednesday last,
the engine of the mail train eastward struck a
man named Henry Noel, and threw him over
the embankment in the vicinity of Allagrippa
station, on the mountain above this place. It
appears that he was walking on the track, and
observing a freight train approaching from the
east, he stepped over to the south track just as
the passenger train, which he had not noticed,
came along, and he was knocked over the em
baukment. The train was immediately stopped
and the injured man taken up, placed on board
and brought to this place, where his wounds
were dressed by Dr. Gemmill. Strange as it
may appear, all the injuries he received were
about the head—a out on the chin, one on his
forehead and another on th tr ? back of his head.
No marks whatever can be found upon his body.
On Friday last, Thomas Carson, an engineer
on the mountain division, had his left leg
broken between the knee and ankle, and badly
squeezed above_ the knee by being caught by
some of the machinery of his locomotive, in
attempting to oil it while it was in motion.'
Dr. Gemmill reduced the fracture, and Tommy,
is now as comfortable as the nature of his;
wounds will admit. •
On Saturday afternoon, a brakeeman named
Walter Davis, while attempting to couple a'
coal car to a truck car, in the yard in this place,
received a compound fracture of the right leg.
below the knee. It appears that he was stand
ing on the coal car, the bumper of which is
lower than that of the stock car, and the latter
ran over the top of the other and caught his
leg. Dr. Gemmill was called in and reduced
the fracture, and at this writing the unfortn:
nate man Is doing well. He was taken to
Greensburg on Monday morning, to which
place he belonged.

I expect them, before entering my house, to

Cana IN THE %BT.—The following dr:scrip-
tion of a horrid cutting affair in St. Louis, on
the`2lst ins'. reminds one of the earlier days of
the west, when carving a human body was
esteemed quite a manly accomplishment among
the pioneers and bravados of the frontier.—
The St. Louis Democrat, of the 22d ince., thus
describes the affair :
The parties were James Kelly, alias " Little
Rea "—a well-known desperado and thief-.—and
a river man named James Mclnervy. They
were formerly associated as boatmen, and "au
old grudge " appears to have ripened between
them. M eting each other at a house, they
were soon in an altercation that resulted in
Kelly's exclaiming, " D—n you, you drew a
knife on, me." This Mclnervy denied, but
Kelly reiterated it, and at the same"time draw
ing ti knife, quickly cut Mclnervy twice trans
versely in the abdomen, causing an immediate
and fearful protrusion of the bewele. The per
petrator fled, and since that time eluded arrest.
The writhing victim was committed to the care

[Extract from a letter on the Battle Field.]
a a a a a a 0 a a
This battle (Antietam) has been the moat
sanguinary of the war, and the only one
fought with visible design and upon military
principles. The arrangement of our corps—
the overlooking position of the commanding
General—the sending into action of the right
and the left division—the closing up of the
centre, and final success—excites bewildering
admiration, and carries the mind to the great
fields of Austerlitz and Wagram, fought by
Na, oleon. Of all this have I spoken. The
heart history of such -a conflict, purchased by
the life and blood of twenty thousand men,
must be found in the hospitals. War has its
glories—but it has its ten thousand demons
in these human tortures, that make the eye
balls ache—the heart bleed—the lips palsy,
and the brain reel. The sight is at first posi
tively unendurable. The life-blood of some
is still trickling away in silent calmness--
while the dissevered limbs and maniac brain of
others give rise to sounds God grant I may not
But ye mothers who here seek a eon—or
wives a husband—or sisters a brother—or eons
a father—know and be consoled that even here
the hand of mercy is watchful, and better care
is bestowed upon your loved ones than might
at first seem possible. It was in the hospital
where rested the gallant Hooker, that I learn
ed the history of those mythical words so often
seen and so little understood, "S. T.-1860—
X." Anything alleviating the sufferings and
saving the lives of our soldiers, is a national
blessing. I witnessed some astonishing results
from this article.
It is well known the effect of burnt gunpowder
and excitement is thirst, which added to the
lam of blood in the wounded, creates the ne
cessity of a reviving stimulant. In this par-
ticular hospital, the ,physicians were allowing
their patients to drink Plantation Bitters, other
wise'called S. T.-1860—X, and although the
wounded are most numerous here—this di
vision having opened the fight at 5 in the
morning—the men were mostly composed, and
there was very little fainting. The article acts
upon the stomach and nerves in a most
incomprehensiblemanner, superior to brandy,
and without subsequent stupefying reaction.
It originated ih the West Indies, composed of
the celebrated Calisaya Bark, Boots, Herbs,
Ste.; all preserved in St. Croix Rum—the S. T.
—lB6O-5 being a secret ingredient, not yet
revealed to the public It is principally
recommended for want of appetite, disordered
liver, intermittent fevers, stomachic difficulties,
&c. I understand it was somewhat known in
the Southern States previi Its to the war, and it
appears an agent of Jefferson Davis recently
applied to the proprietors for the privilege
to make it for hospital purposes during the
war, to which they made the following reply:

Dear Sir.—ln reply to your communication,

and that otherwise we can derive no revenue

it might please us to assuage the sufferings
