SAD CASE or DROWNINO.—We are pained to
learn that, on Friday evening week, Mr. John
A. Noel, of Buchanan valley, was drowned in
Wild Cat Branch of the Conewago, a short
distance from his home. The heavy rain
which had just fallen—the heaviest ever recol
lected there—had swollen the stream to an ex
traordinary height, Mr. Noel, had been
to Mumasburg with the team, accompanied by
his father, and on the return just after dark,
did- not suppose the stream dangerous, and
drove in without fear_ But the lead horse was
at once swept around, and Mr. Noel, in get
ting off the saddle horse and trying to reach
the bank, was struck by the rapid current and
carried down—to rise no more. His body was
found about two o'clock next morning, two
hundred yards below the crossing. His age
was 86 years and 4 months. He leaves a wife
and four children to mourn his sad death.—
God comfort them. '
The new depot of the Penneylvania railroad
now in ccinise of erection at Pittsburg, will
Mill a front 011 Liitierty street of seven hun
dred feet, and on Elm street of one hundred
and fifty-nine feet. Five hundred feet of the
Liberty street, front will be of iron, highly or

of the character in the country.
DEATH OF AN Ex-EDITOR OF THE DEMOCRAT.
—William H. Powell, Esq., formerly editor
and publisher of the 'Doy/estown Democrat, died
at his residence in . Plymouth township, Mont
gomery county, very suddenly, on the morning
of the 12th of October. The deceased was a
printer by profession. He, learned 'the busi
ness in the office of the Norristown Register,
and afterwards, in connection with Samuel D.
Patterson, Esq., published that paper. On
retiring from that establishment, he pur
chased, in 1830, the Doylestown Democrat from
Mr. Snyder, and published it until about 1834,
when he sold it • to the late Judge Bryan.
Subsequently he engaged in the mercantile
business in Market street, Philadelphia, in
which he continued successfully for a period
of nearly twenty years, when he purchased a
farm in Plymouth township, where he ended
BARN BURNED.—Mr. George Washington
Brown, of Middletown, was at mill on Wed
nesday last, and returning home a little before
nine o'clock at night, and taking a little boy
with a lantern, proceeded to the barn to put
away his horse. While Mr. B. was in the en
try the boy let the lantern fall in the stable,
setting the straw on fire. He called Mr. 8.,
who attempted to stamp it ont;•and called to
hive wife for _water, but it had Made such head
way that he was unable to extinguish the
flames, and the barn;with all the crops of the
season, were consumed.
LADIES FAIR BY FAIR LADIES—The ladies• con
nected with the St. John's Catholic congrega
tion, Altoona, are busily employed just now
in the preliminary arrangements for a grand
Fair, for the benefit of the church, to be held
there in the course of a few weeks.
STEEP.—Butter is retailing in our market at
only 27 cents per pound—a figure we do not
recollect it to have ever reached before, and
one that behooves those of limited means to
know on which side their bread is buttered.
ESCAPED.-Six prisoners, confined in the
Ebensburg jail, made their escape from 44 du
rance tile," on Thursday night a week, by cut
ting the bars of one of the windows of their
cell. One of them was captured at Johnstown
and re-jugged, but made his escape the second
MIDSHIPMEN APPOINTED. —ln the list of can
didate admitted as Midshipmen in the United
States Naval Adademy at Newport, Rhode Is
land, at the regular fall examination for 1863,
we observe the name of John Hagenman, son
of Mr. Lewis Hagenman, of Reading ; and
John Missimer, jr., son of John Missimer, of
Alsace township. _
Mr. J. J. Good, (brother of Rev. Wm. A.
Good, of Reading) who had been in the mili
tary service over two years and had escaped
without a wound was killed at the battle of
Chickamauga, on Sept. 19th, while bravely
charging on a rebel battery. He was a mem
ber of Co. A. 77th Regt. P. V.
DEssgrans.—On Thursday evening last five
deserters, under escort of a squad of soldiers,
were taken east on the cars. They were na
tives of Somerset county, and were there cap
tured. Only one, we believe, was a paroled
prisoner; the rest had been for some time in
service. Notwithstanding the shoddy organs
of Pittsburg have declared that the "secession
element is strong in Johnstown," no attempt
was made to rescue them.
THE best answer that Mr. Pershing could
make to the attack 'of the Scrip manager
through his pettifogging and printing agents,
would be a plainly transcribed copy of his cer
tificate of oloctin tc the Legislature, for the
third time, by the PEOPLE of Cambria county.
The total vote OW at last fall's election in
Columbia county was, on the state ticket,.
4,314. At the late election the vote polled was
0,148; an increase of 829 votes. The Demo
cratic majority last fall was 1,650; at this elec
tion it falls short nine votes of what it was last
fall. It will be seen on the 829 increased vote
the Democracy nearly held their own. In
Bloom township 406 votes were polled last fall,
and at this election 479 were polled ; an in
crease of 78 votes over last fall's election. The
Republican majority in this township last fall
was 32, and at this election their majority is
87. O u t of the increased vote the Democratic
ticket received but 9 in this township.
Among the Rounded at the battle of Bristow
Station,t Virginia, is Lieut. Colonel John K.
Robinson, (16th Pa. Cavalry,) of , this county.
Capt. Wilson ought to have been there fight

ACCIDERT.-Mr. Thomas T. Kocher, of King

coke last week. - He was assisting to raise a
truss at the bridge on the Lackawanna and
Bloomsburg railroad, when the sling broke
and a large piece of timber struck him on the
back of the head. It was feared that conges

worthy, industrious man.

and therefore know no
thing as to the truth of the rumor.
Although the result of the election on Tues
day in this State is not as favorable as many
hoped, there is no reason for any lack of effort
for success at another time. Whatever the re.
stilt now, sooner, or later, if _our republican
Yorm of government is to be preserved, the
Democratio principle must prevail. It is the
principle of the Cohstitution which formed the
Union and made our country what it was, and
upon it alone can the latter be restored. Dem
ocrats, maintain your organisation and let
every Club be maintained the same as before
the late election. Our vote and majority in
Montgomery county are a good foundation upon
which to build, and at another election we
shall swell them to a much larger figure.
Two DEMOCRATIC VETERARB.-At the recent
election, the venerable Peter Steckel, of Moore
hoWnship, in the 93d year of his age, walked
three miles to the election at Klecknersville,
to deposit his ballot for Judge Woodward. His
elder brother, Mr. Daniel Steckel, 97 years
of age, also attended the election at Bath and
deposited his vote for the Democratic ticket.
All honor to these aged veterans.
We learn that Charles T. Yoder, formerly of
Unity township, until lately a member of com
pany C, Fourth Pennsylvania cavalry, has re

master General's office at Washington, with a
salary of $1,600 per annum.
Major George 11. Covode, of the Fourth Penn

NEGRO EQUALITY IN CARLFA..—That portion
of Canada bordering the Detroit river, where
gentlemen of African descent from the "neigh

congregate, is a perfect paradise for the negro.
At the recent Kent assizes. held at Chatham, a
scene occurred. The Planet thus describes :
Upon the case being called, Mr. Thomas
Russell rose in...thejury box and said that one
of the jurors chosen was a colored man, and
the eleven white men agreed that they would
not sit with him. lie said this in behalf of the
jury, but out of no contempt for the court, but
simply stated the fact, and begged to be re•
Judge Richards—l know no reason why
you should not in the eyes of the law act as
juryman as you have been chosen.
Mr. Russell—We do not think he is intelli
gent enough - Wad,
Judge Richards—But the law says he is, and
that is sufficient. The law is the judge in this
matter, not the jury.
Mr. Russell—Well, then, air, I must respect

Justice Richards—Well, then,-1 shall fine

Justice Richards—l shall send you down be

Mr. Russell—Well. (Here Mr. Russell left
the jury box.
Justice Richards—Mr. Clerk, what is that
man's name name leaving the box.
The Clerk (Ireland)—Mr. Thomas Russell,
'Justice Richards—Well then record a fine of
five pounds against Mr. Thomas Russell.
Mr. Bergeson Verrall, standing in his place
in the jury boy—My Lord, I am ill able to pay

will go to the cells. (Here Mr. Varral left the

Mr. Clerk—Mr_ Sargeson Verrall, my
Justice Richards—Record a fine of five pounds
against him, too. (A . pause.) Call some more
jurors to fill up the box.
The clerk then proceeded •to call the names
of Mr. Hugh Palmer, of Oxford, and Mr. Wm.
M'Pherson, of Bothwell, who Mk the vacated
seats and were sworn in as jurors in the room
of Mr. Russell and Mr. Verrall, who refused to
WEBSTER.—The Boston Past, in noticing the
recent visit of Mrs. Webster to the tomb of her
husband in Marshfield, says, after ten years
of sepulture in the harbor of the Pilgrims, the
doors of the tomb swung suddenly back, and
the lid of the sarcophagus was raised by the
friendly hand of surviving friendship, Peter
Harvey, Esq., to see what traces a decade of
years in death had left of the illustrious de
parted. It was found that " the noble brow
was yet 'perfect in all its features," and that
the "contour of that impressive face" was pre
served the same as on the day when the funs•
ral of ten thousand, at whose head was a Pre
siedut of the United States, in all his su
pernal prime, took up its solemn march from
the library at Marshfield to wend its way to
the " Tomb by the . Great Sea."
THE NEW POSTAL Guano:cr.—The wretched
new postal currency, of which specimens have
begun to appear here, was gotten up in Wash.
ington city; and none of our New York artists
or artisans are responsible for it. The entire
work of designing, engraving and printing the
notes was done in the Department at Washing
ton—which, fact is recorded in a line at the
bottom of the notes themselves. We hope it
will not be allowed to go into circulation.—
We could better endure our present dirty slips
a month or tiro longer than the substitution
of such trash—if the notes we have are speci
mens of those that remain behind.--New York

GOLD.—There are good reasons for believing
that gold was the first metal with which man
became acquainted. Its peculiar properties
render it the best for the purpose of being
worked by a primative..people. Gold is the
only metal which is found in a metallic state,
such as we see it need in the arts and mann.
factures. The process of - *lending all the
other metals from their matrix or ore is so te
dious and difficult that without gold it is pro.
bable our forefathers would have had no me
tals at all to use. We who live at thisperiod
of the world's history can well believe how
little advancement could be made in-civiliza
tion without a metal of some kind. Now those
qualities which we recognize as metallit in the
highest degree are possessed by gold, and it is
thne we see, even in this single instance, a
proof of the Creator's wisdom in the adoption
of a means to an end. Gold, the most easily
worked of all metals, the most imperishable,
the most brilliant and attractive, was the first
that was given to man. No other metal could
have served the purpose so well as the one we
find him first possessed of.. No wonder gold
is typified in the Scriptures as the purest me
tal, no wonder that it was chosen as the means
(in the shape of coin) of representing the pro
ducts of labor, that man should select what
age after age has proved to be the most fitting
thing for this purpose. As an assurance to
us that the supply of gold shall be adequate to
our wants, this metal has been found in the
ratio of the increase of the human family. It
is diffused over the whole earth, and has seta
as a stimulus to man to visit regions pre
viously uncultivated. The wilds of Australia
and California have thus been peopled in our
day in the same way that the Spaniards peo
pled South America years ago. .
"WOUNDED AND KILLED."—It takes but little
spade in the columns of the daily papers, but
oh what long household stories and biogra
phies are every one of these strange names we
read over and forget ! Killed and wounded !
Some eye reads the name, to whom it is as
dear as life, and some heart is struck or broken
by the blow made by some name among the
list. It is our Henry, or oar James, or oar
John, that lies with his poor limbs at the hos
pital, or dead—still, and with ghastly face—
on the battle-field. Alas for the eyes that read !
" He was my pretty boy, that I have sung to
sleep so many times in my EMI !" says the
poor mother, bowing in anguish that cannot be
uttered. "He was my brave, noble husband,
the father of my little orpan children !" sobs
the stricken wife. "He was my darling brother,
that I was proud of !" murmurs the sister,
amid tears ; and so the terrible stroke falls on
the homes throughout the laud. "Wounded
and killed !" Every name in that list is a
lightning stroke to some heart, and breaks the
thunder over some home, and falls a long black
shadow upon some hear th-stone.
An educated man ought to know three things:
First, where he is—that is to say, what sort of
a world he has got into ; how large it is, what
kind of creatures live in it, and how ; what it
is made of, and what may be made of it.—
Secondly, where he is going—that is to say.
what chances or reports there are of any other
world besides this ; what seems to be the na
ture of that other world.' Thirely, what he
had beat do tinder these circumstances—that
is to say, what kind of faculties he possesses.
what are the present state and wants of man
kind ; what is his place in society ; and what
are the readiest means in his power of attain
ing happiness and diffusing it. 'The man who
knows them' things, and who has his will so
subdued in the learning of them that he is
ready to do what he knows he ought, is an
educated man ; and the man who knows them
not is uneducated, though he could talk an the
tongues of Babel.—Ruskin.
A DEVOTED DAITORTED,—Sir John Cochrane,
being engaged in Argyle's rebellion against
James 11, was taken prisoner after a desperate
resistance, and sentenced to be hanged. His
daughter Grizzle having obtained information
that the death-warrant was expected from
London by the coach, dressed herself up in
man's clothes and twice attacked and robbed,
between Belford and Berwick, the mails which
conveyed the death-warrants. This gave time
to Sir John Coebrane's father, the Earl of
Dundonald, to make interest with rather Pe
ter, a Jesuit priest and the king's confessor,
who, for the EMU of five thousand pounds,
agreed to intercede with his royal master, and
to obtain his pardon, which was panted. The
great-granddaughter of this lady, Miss Stuart,
of Allan Bank, was the grandmother of the
late eminent banker, Mr. Thomas Coutts,
whose grandchild is the present Miss Burdett
• Tina skeletons of five Indians, together with
three copper coins, were discovered at Newton
Corner, Mass., some days since, by some la
borers who were digging a cellar. The re
mains were found in different parts of the eel=
tar, and about two feet below the ground. The
evidences are, as this was once the seat of an
Indian settlement, that many of their dead
were buried there. Those parts of the skele
ton which were found most intact were the
skulls. The jawbone of one was in perfect
condition, and contained the full number of
teeth, the enamel of which was in an excellent
state of preservation. Parts of the' ribs and
back-bone were also found in good condition.
Only one of the coins could be deciphered ; on
it was a head ; it is believed to, belong to the
reign of Geerge I, and to have been made be
tween 1720 and 1730.
TILE ORIGIN OF HAND-BRAYING.—The Romans
had a goddess whose name was Fides, or Fi
delety—a goddess of "faith and honesty," to
whom Numa was the first to pay divine honors.
Her only dress was a white veil, expressive of
frankness, candor and modesty ; and her sym
bol was two right hands joined, or" sometimes
two figures holding each other by the right
hand ; whence, in all agreements among the
Greeks and Romans, it was usual for the par
ties to take each other by the hand, as a token
of their intention to adhere to the compact ;
and this custom is in more general use, even
among ourselves at the present day, than
would at first thought be realized.
SINGULAR DEATEI.—A young man named B
residing in the Avenue de, Clichy, lost
his life, a few days since, while attempting to
save a favorite cat which had fallen into a deep
draw well. On being informed of his poor cat's
accident, he immediately determined to fetch
her up,a rather dangerous operation for hits,as
he had but one leg, having lost the other when
in the army. In spite of all his neighbors could
say, be insisted on being let down by a rope in
to the well, and he succeeded in bringing up
the cat; but while he was handing her to his
assistants, the rope broke, and he fell to the
bottom. Some time wee /oat in procuring ano
ther rope, and when B— was drawn from the
well, life waS extinct.
DISCOVERY OF B.ocw. SALT AT MIDDLESBOR
OCOR.—The following is an extract of a letter
from Newcastle-on -Tyne ; "I do not know
whether you have observed anything about a,
very interesting discovery that has been made
in this district, under the new red sandstone
—a bed of rock salt at Middlesborough, where
they have bored. It is about 120 feet thick ;it
is deep, I think, about 200 fathoms."
