GBORGE SMITH of Montour to be Collector
of tolls at Beach Haven.
JAMES MAXWELL of Danville to be Weigh
master at Beach Haven.

MURE HELP. —We are highly pleased to
notice that Hon. Geo. R. M. Farlane of Hol
lidaysburg has become the editor of the Har
risburg Keystone, having purchased the half
of that establishment. Judge M. Fortune's
name is not a stranger to us, and the num
ber of trie Keystone which we open from his
administration speaks in u more truthful,
fearless and Democratic style than any thing
which has gladdened us in a long time. We
rejoice in the spirit of political brotherhood
that beams from the new page of tho Key
stone, and trust tvo shall long have its pros
perous companionship in our editorial labors.
Ruinous Effects of Burnt
A startling incident connected with the
'misery which follows in the train of King
Alcohol, occurred in Rev. Mr. Johnson's
Sedbnd Methodist Church, ot this Borough,
on Sunday evening last. While tho codec
tioti was being taken up, a man whose per
sonal appearance evidently denoted a shat
tered constitution, and consequent misery
and suffering, threw itilo the basket a small
paper carefully rolled np, which on subse
quent examination was found to contain a
half dime, the last remnant, it seems, of a
wasteful patrimony; for oil the paper was
written, " This is the last of Jour thousand dol
lars left me ly my father —Rum and its effects

and evidently a wanderer upon the face of
