RAILROAD AOOID&NT.—An aedlent occurred
on the railroad at the lower station In
liarii•tta, near Musselman's Furnace, last week
by which Mr. Tracing, the flagman of the local
freltht train, had his arm caught between the
bumps re whilst shifting some cars, and so badly
mashed between the elbow and the shoulder
joint as to render amputation necessary Within
four inches of the shoulder. The operation
weo performed by Drs. W. W. Rutherford, of
this city, end Henry Landis, of Marietta. The
wounded man is lying at Jobnstin's Hermitage
Hotel in Marietta, and doing as well as could
be expected.
SA/WORD'S OPERA House.—Grand Skaiing Car
nival.- -The principal attraction at this popu
lar place of amusement this evening is the irri
eistably funny and mirth-provoking comiedetta,
entitled "New Year's Calls," introducing a
grand skating scene on the stage, in which the
performers, Including "brudder bones," - will
ye examples of their proficiency in this ex--
hlllerating pastime. The skates used on the
occasion are those known as "parlor skates,"
which, on a emo th door, and. ,on the feet of
o racticed dieters, enab e them' to perform move)...
eats as graceful and elegant as if they were
hod with the bona fide steel, and on ice. The
exhibition will be a decided novelty in our city,
ad we have no doubt there will be a full house
. .a the occasion.
THY ILLUMINATION in our city last Saturday
ening, although not as general as was ex
cted, was still of a character to reflect credit
.pen those who participated in it. A number
.t private residences were illuminated, among
hich we may particularly mention those of
.e Executive mansion in south Second street;
ames M'Cormick, Esq., In Market street;
ames M'Cormick, Jr., in Walnut street ; Wm.
erbeke, lo Walnut street; James W. Weir, at
.e Harrisburg Bank ; John A. Weir, in Second

'rest. The Truck house of the Mount Vernon
?:ode and Ladder company, Quartermaster
"ikon's trace, and Gross & Ross' Drug store
Market street, and the Brady House, were
i so handsomely illuminated and attracted
oeb attention.
TRIED FOR DESERTION.—The last number of

nod extemporary has been victimized
by -k.:: urcncy to this statement. We are
/ 1(4 that the State of Pennsylvania has
any law which provides for the

mikll this afternoon. It has been ascertained,
however, that the deceased was not named Boss,
but C. Garwood, also a drover, and a partner of
R. A. Boss. There was a third partner in the
firm, J. Breisbach, and the three were in Pitta
burg recently, with a lot of hogs, which they
sold to Joseph Scott, agent of M'Clellend &
Logan, of Baltimore. They received $lOO here
from the agent, on account, and were to receive
the balance on delivery of the hogs. Dreisbach
went home west, after shipping the hogs, and
Garwood and Ross went on to Baliimore. The
former was found at the depot, in this city, in
the condition described, but Ross has not since
been beard from. There is some mystery about
the affair which 'Leeds clearing up, and the
Coroner will endeavor to draw out all the facts.
A post inertem examination of Garwood's body
has been ordered, to ascertain the cause of his
sudden and fatal illness.
Since writing the ',hove the Pittsburg Chroni
cle says that a son of Mr. Garwood has arrived
at Pittsburg from Warsaw, Ind., after the ver
diet of the Coroner's Jury, will take charge of
his fathers remains, and forward them by ex
preset to his late home. The young man states
that his lather was subjsct to violent attacks of
the colic, which occasionally rendered him
speechless; but he is at a loss to account for the
other suspicious circumstances connected with
the tragic affair.
IN nuit 'HARRISBURG Balms.—Last Saturday a
drove'', named Newman Ell wood, from one of
the Western States, arrived on the opposite side
of the river with a drove of cattle and horses,
and plat up at one of the taverns, with the
Intention of remaining there until this morning.
Some time yesterdiy afternoon he visited the
city, crossing the Harrisburg Bridge on foot,
for the purpose of
.transacting some business
with lir. Win. Metzger and other of our city
butchers with whom he was acquainted. He
remained here till towards dark, when he start
ed on his return to the opposite side of the
river. After paying his toll, and as he was
about entering the bridge, on the right hand
side, he discoverd a man who seemed to be
watching him with no good intentions. The
drover, however, proceeded into the bridge,
and had advanced only a couple of rods, when
he heard footsteps at some distance behind
him, which he at once concluded were those of
the man he had seen at the entrance of the
bridge. He stopped a moment to listen,
bat the sound of the footsteps had ceased,
and were oaf - teemed when he himself
continued his progress. Not relishing this
state of affairs, the drover crossed t 3 the left
hand side of the bridge, and continued on
I quickly, anxious to be at the end of his journey
as soon as possible. He had not proceeded far,
however, until he again heard the approaching
footsteps at some distance behindfilm, his follow
er having also crossed to the left hand side of
the bridge. The drover, previously apprehen
sive, was now fully satisfied that some mis
chief was intended, and as he had a considers
sum of money about him, and no means of
defence, he leaped from the foot-walk into the
wagon track, through which he rapidly re
traced his steps back to the city, having
concluded to remain over night at the
White Hall Hotel. But before he reached this
tavern, it seems he repented of his timid
ity, and returned to the bridge, resolving to
cross at all haszards. He accordingly re-enter
ed the bridge, after paying his toll the secont
time, and proceeded unmolested until he reach
the other side of the Island, when his ears
were again greeted by the sound of approach
ing foot steps some distance in his rear. As
'upon the previous occasion, he stopped to lis
ten, but that instant the footsteps lilac' ceased,
and he could hear nothing except the ceaseless
sound of the dark rushing waters beneath him.
The glooin and loneliness of the situation, with
the attending circumstances, was well calcula
ted to inspire feelings of dread in the bravest
heart, yet the drover proceeded onward un
til he was about midway through the bridge,
when amen suddenly jumped in front of him and
struck him violently In the breast with a knife, or
some other sharp instrnment,which penetrated
to s considerable depth, causing a profuse flow
of blood. This was quickly followed up by a
blow on the head with a club or billy, which
caused him to fall almost senseless against the
th poo e ke t ta hr iz olt -
between side of the bridge, where he was held by
f h ou te r five tia hundred ntrifiedhis
in bank notes, the proceeds of a recent
sale of cattle. After securing this booty the
robber made his escape in the direction of the
,Gamberland aide of the river, and has not &tee
been heard of.
When the drover had somewhat recovered
from the immediate effects of the attack, he
retnrped to the city, and this morning made
frifqhputtion of the OCCUMMOO at the mayor's
oaks, giving such a description of the robber

Diring the past year, several incidents of

after our last anniversary, and was at once nor

Mori . 'as, in tbd judgment of some, rendered it
impracticable for the parent society to carry, out
itryintention of celebrating its anniversary in
our midst. Other counsels, however, prevailsd,
and the meeting.was held with very happy 're
sults. Delegates were in attendance from the
extreme eastern and western parts of the State,
and the great and good causeOn whiph we feel
so deep au intttest, ceived a new impetus, and
its friends here assembled were inspired with
fresh zeal.
The vast army -that responded so patrioti
cally to our country's call for defence against
the wretched traitors that were plotting its
ruin, has opened up a new and wide field for
usefulness -to our association. In many in
stances, the families from the midst of which
these soldiers went forth were not supplied,
with the word of God in a form suitable for
convenient transportation ; in others, amid.
the hurry and excitement of preparation for
the march, this best of traveling companions
was forgotten. And so it came to pass that a
very large proportion of the soldiers quartered
in this vicinity, from time to :time, were-found
to i e destitute of- the Sacred ligriptures. , To
meet this want, after exhatistiffk our supply
on hand, application was made by our asso•
ciation to the parent society for grants of books
for distribution among the soldiers. This ap
peal met with the pipet generous response.
The Sacred Scriptures, in the English, German
and Welsh languages, were distributed among
the soldiers in large numbers, and were almost
invariably received with eager interest, and
warm expressions of gratitude. For want of a
suitable person to superintend this distribu
tion, there were, no doubt, some regiments,
temporarily sojourning in the camps hear our
city that were not properly supplied with, the
Word of God. For the last few months, how
ever, the Rev. Mr. Davis, who has been em:
ployed by some lovers of the truth in our
midst, as a colporteur in Camp Curtin, 'has
added this to the list of his daily duties, and
we have reason to believe that now no sol
dier leaves our camp for the seat of war with

. . mdfffe at sebtittna of - thehmuntry at
tended, In the capAcity of delegates, upon its
deliberations. From our own society .the at
tendance was very large and we have reason to
believe that new life was infused into -more
than one of the auxiliaries' by the spirited and
instructive discussions of that occasion. The
next anniversary of the county society will be
held at Dauphin, in the month of November,
and the board entertain the hope that it may
be still more numerously attended and more
useful than the last.
It affords us much - pleasure, also, to report
that the plan adopted at our test meeting of ap
pointing a committee of ladies from all our
churches, to call upon the whole community,
and give every one an opportunity of contribu
ting to the bible cause, has been crowned with
the most encouraging success. The last annual
report of our Treasurer, exhibited a revenue
during the year immediately precedit , g of
$126 67, whereas by the efforts of the ladies,
our revenues this year have increased to the
sum of $291 74. It was well that we had a
liberal contribution to forward to the treasury
of, the parent society, as we have had occasion
to make such heavy drafts upon its stock of
books for distribution, as above indicated. But
there is reason to fear that the Pennsylvania
Bible Society sadly crippled in its future
eperationa, unless its frii•nds enthusiastically
rally to its support, after the wants of the pa
triotic soldiery have occasioned such a heavy
drain upon its resources.
The Board has therefore determined again to
try the plan resorted to a year ago and which
proved so successful. Committees of ladies
have been, or will be, appointed, who will call
upon all our citizens during the present week,
and we herewith confidently bespeak for them
a kind and liberal reception.
Supposing that there might be some here
who would not be met by these committees, and
who desire to cast in their gifts to encourage
this noble cause, the Board propose also to take
up a collection at this time. "The Lord loveth
a cheerful giver." In the name of the Board.
