To S3IOKEIIS —Our friend Bannvart, the drug_
gist, has just received a fine lot of imported
Li mina cigars from Mr. Horn's establishment,
stiller the Continental Hotel, consisting in par
of Colo cos, Globo, Tullpan, Elegantes, °on&

the wee d should not forget to call at his store,
under the Jones' House, and see the assortment.
SERIOUS ACCEDENT.—Last week; Miss Emma
Jordan, daughter of Edward Jordan, Esq., re
siding near Middletown, met with a serious ac
cident while on a visit to Philadelphia. It
appears while she in company with a number
of other young, ladies, out skating, she slipped
and fell upon the ice, and severely injured her
spine. She wan brought to h. r home on Sa
turday. We have not been able to learn the
extent of the injury she received, nor what the
prospects are for her recovery.
lisw SLEEPING Calls.—Two handsome sleeping
cars, (Woodruff's patent,) manufactured at the
Philadelphia car works, passed through here
yesterday westward. They are intended for the
Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago railroad,
and differ somewhat from those of the same
patent heretofore in use, they having had sev
eral important improvements introduced into
them, one of which is the manner in which the
cars are ventilated.
SANFORD'S OPERA Housz.—The "Seven SlB
lets" has continued to be the principal attrac
tion at the Opera House during the week. It
is a very amusing and showy combination of
burlesque and spectacle, with local matters in
terwoven, and a rousing appeal to the Union
sentiment of the audience. It will be repeated
again this evening, in connection with Uncle
Tom's Cabin, and we advise everybody
to stand not on the older of their going, but go
Mon Wsgsa.—The water in the Susque
hanna still remains at a flood height. The
same may be said of all the creeks and small
streams throughout our county- The Middle
town Journal, of yesterday, says "the Swatara,
river Is bank full of water, and overflowing in
some places. It commenced to swell rapidly
as early as Monday morning, on which day
the greater portion Jf the ice was forced loose
and swept into the Susquehanna, which was a
fortunate occurrence for our timber merchants,
as the timber in the stream could not have
withstood the heavy body of water now in
the Swatara, combined with the presure of the
ice. We believe but a few longs were carried
away by the freshet."
IMPJRTANT ENTERPRISIL —Newspaper gz
press.—With a view to the accommodation of
newspaper readers along the line of the Penn
sylvania railroad, that company will, on Mon
day next, commenc r running a newspaper express,
which will leave Philadelphia every morning,
at fuur u'duck, and reach this city at 845, A. M.
lhirt mil be a great accommodation, not only
to our citiz:us, but to those residing along the
line of the road further west. At present the
Philadelphia papers are received in this city by
way of Reading and Lebanon, by one o'clock,
P. M. The new arrangement will put the Cen
tral Route ahead in the news business, and it is
another evidence of the readiness of the Penn
sylvania railroad to accommodate the citizens
of thu State.
A CCOMMODATION WANTED .—A correspondea
o the Middletown Journal says that there are
probably very few points along the line of the
Pennsylvania railroad in which there is more
travel then daily occurs between Middletown
and Harrisburg. The points are closely con
nected in their business relations and the travel
is quite large. For some time past considerable
inconvenience has been experienced in conse
quence of that being nu train over the road
until one o'clock in the day—which under the,
present arrangement affords but little time for
the transaction of business at Harrisburg. The
Pennsylvania raitroad'could,without subjecting
themselves to any additional expense or incon
venience, obviate the difficulty by placing a
Passenger car on the local morning freight
train. If the company would adopt this sug
gestion It would have the effect of increasing
the travel and at the same time give universal
satisfaction to the business public. It is to be
hoped that the present indefatigable Superin
tendent of the road will endeavor to grant ibe
requisite accommodation by ordering a passen
ger ear to be attached to the local freight from
Middletown to this city in the morning.
Since writing-the ablVe we have been inform
ed that the company will commence running
a morning train on the road next Monday,
whioh wu presume will afford the accommoda
tions desired by our Middletown friends.
COURT PsoosSIDINGS.—Thu following cases
were tried in Court since our last report :
Com. vs. Robert Baskius. Assault and bat

THE UNION CANAL.—Theie are at present
about one hundred and twenty men employed
along the line of tae Union Canal, repairing,
cleaning out, and otherwise improving the
same. The work is being pushed forward, so
as to be ready for the opening of navigation,
as early as the season will permit. The carry
ing capacity of these works is being gradually
but surely improved. Since the enlargement,
the capacity has been increased thirty-three
Among other improvements, the construction
of a new sluice-way at the "Big Dam," near
Jonestown, is worthy if notice. A drift or
tunnel is being made from below the dam into
the pool of the same, above. This drift will
be circular, eight feet in diameter, and about
two hundred and fifty feet in length, through
a solid "trip rock. Iu the pool of the dam,
over the month of the drift, a stone sluice, or
gate-house, some forty-five feet high, will be
erected. Tida rk is progressing as rapidly
as practicable, a night and day force being em
A NOVEL WEDDING.—Our citizens will recol
lect Father Kemp's " Old Folks," who gave
several concerts at Brant's Hall, in oar pity,
several years ago. The troupe are now known
as the "Continental Old Folks," and are at
present giving a serious of entertainments at
the Musical Fund Hall, Philadelphia. During
the present season a young couple, known upon
the posters and programmes as " Cousin Reu
ben" and "Granny Slocum," have added
much to the reputation of the troupe ; and,
from an invitation received, we judge as they
increased in the favor of the public, they
also increased in the esteem of each other
Last evening the sequel was made apparent to
the attendants at the Concert, it having been
so determined by the parties interested that,
at the close of the entertainment, Miss Hattie
A. Amiable and Henry K Holloway, clothed
in the garb of "ye olden time," would be
united in the holy bonds of matrimony, in
the presence of the audience, by the Rev.
Charles Wadsworth, D. D. The ceremony
being concluded, the witnesses were invited to
partake of a collation of doughnuts, cider, &c.,
similar to those served in years gone by upon
DEsoovauT of A Maw BORN INFANT. —Probable
Infanticide.—At an early hour this morning, a
roll of white cotton cloth was discovered lying
upon the floor of a privy in the yard of a pri
vate residence in Mary's alley, between Second
street and Meadow lane, which, upon being
taken np and unrolled, revealed the naked body
of a new born white male infant. It had evi
dently been placed there the night previous
by some unknown person, and was quite dead
when first discovered." The circumstance
created quiet an excitement in the neighbor
hood, and notice of the fact was conveyed to
Justice Beader, who proceeded to hold an in
quest over the remains. Several witnesses
were examined, but nothing was eliicted that
could lead to the indentification of the body,
or the discovery of the parties who placed it
where it was found. The child was about one
day old, its body wall formed, and it is the
opinion of a physician examined at the inquest,
that it was living when born. The jury re
turned a verdict in accordance with the above
facts, and the corpse was sent to the Poor
house burial ground for interment. It might
be proper to state that the family who occupy
the house to which the privy belongs, are
highly respectable, and no one entertains any
suspicion of their complicity in the affair. The
privy is of easy access from the alley, the gate
of the yard being open more than half the
time; and it is supposed that this was taken
advantage of by the heartless mother of the
child to be relieved from its, care, and at the
same time to shield herself from the penalties
of outraged law.
Tas "FAKIR OF Ave" MULL—We stated yes
terday that this " humbug " had turned up in
Pittsburg, and that the newspapers of that city
were after him wita a " sharp-stick." It ap
pears, also, that the Pittsburg police authorities
discovered a city ordinance against such " lot
tery" arrangements as that advertised by the
"Fakir," and warned him Of their intention
to enforce it in his case, should he persist in
the " gift " portiou'of his entertainment.
The Pittsburg Dispatch of yesterday contains
the following in relation to the matter
" The Fakir appeared, by request, at the
Mayor's office yesterday afternoon, and was in
formed of the existence of the ordinance re
ferred to, also of the intention to enforce it. He
was not a little surprised, and after some pleas
ant conversation with the .mayor—the Fakir
being extremely polite and gentlemanly in his
demeanor—he stated that rather than abandon
his exhibition on the advertised plan he would
consent to appropriate the proceeds to some
charitable purpose. The Mayorreplied that in
that event he would enforce the ordinance, be
lieving it could not be evaded in that way.
" Then," said the Fakir, " if I give a perform
ance thre will likely be a disturbance in con
sequence of the Otte not being distributed."
The Mayor assured him that he should be pro
tected. If the Fakir concludes to forego giving
a performance in this city, the license fee paid
by him will be refunded, and he will depart to
a region where humbuggery is more popular.
Since the above was written we have learned
that the performance will certainly be given to
night with the omission of the prize drawing
portion, which has been forbidden by the au
The following notice also appeare in another
part of the Dispatch. It winds the "Fakir" up
"Ticsura for sale at Hunt's book store, un
der Masonic Hall," is the announcement at the
head of the "small bills" of the "Fakir of
Ave," who, according to report, considers it a
sharp feat of " magic " to gull simple people
with gifts of gimcrackery. Mx. J. P. Hunt
sends us a private note to say " he will not sell
any of the said Fakir's tickets."
